I'm a spider fan and this is a great photo.

Thank you for your interest, Tukup. They really look like each other, but I am still not sure they are from the same species. I am in touch with other spider lovers in FB, lets see if they can contribute with a definite ID.

As I continue to look at this spider, I'm not finding a good range description that puts it in your area. I may have been premature, but it looks like an exact match. I'll keep checking.

Hi Sergio. The smaller spider (male?) on the left looks like a match to the one in your picture. It is about half way down the page in the link I sent. Beautiful colors. Nice shot.

Pode sim, Oscar, vai ser uma honra. Afinal Paraná e Santa Catarina são quase a mesma coisa... :-)

Olá Sergio, na sua missão de lagartas do Paraná, lista lá que podem ser postadas fotos de lagartas do norte de Santa Catarina, mas no mapa alvo mostra Santa Catarina como um todo. Minha dúvida é, posso postar as que tenho? Creio serem do Oeste de SC.
