Comments & ID Thoughts

Based on the identification of a different spider photographed on the same day at this location, I think this ay be the Huntsman spider, Heteropoda venatoria.

Pretty Heteropoda, I don’t think it’s the common venatoria though. I see a few similar to this one… I don’t know how much luck you’ll have getting the ID past genus from an image but worth a shot. On facebook there is a private group called “Arachnology” that has a good ratio of knowledgeable people, another is “Asian Society of Arachnology”, someone there might be able to point you in the right direction.
