A beautiful Huntsman spider (I think) whose body was about 2.5-3 cm long. It was silky black with brilliant yellow stripes down the sides of the thorax.
This spider was found walking in the cut grass 10 meters from a cement block building where they are commonly seen. It was spotted @20:30 in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.
Hopefully someone can find a clue to its identity, or at least confirm that it is a Huntsman..
