Thanks a lot for the ID Ashley and I appreciate the time you put in. That's dedication. It's nice to see some of my older spottings get identified.

This one took me forever! This is a highly variable species as far as pattern goes, but the webbing on the front feet limits it to two species, and the blueish granular look on the outer thigh and striping on the inner thigh narrow it down to this species. It's beautiful too!
