Tiger Wandering Spider

Cupiennius salei

Description:

Probably a female due to its size (3cm body length). It's missing the pale markings on the abdomen from the other spotting, but I think it's the same species. Also grey/brown in colour with thin dark lines on the abdomen and longitudinal stripes on the cephalothorax; dark bands on first leg segment. Like all members of the Ctenidae family, a groove runs down the length of the carapace.

Habitat:

Found after dark in rainforest around Laguna Miramar in Chiapas, Mexico.

Notes:

Wandering Spiders are often called Banana Spiders.
