Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Looks like cyriococus Elegans, but that species is limited to Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago according to the info I could dig up. Thus specimen was seen a little south of the Amazon River in Para state, Brazil at 2.526S, 54.944 W. Any help identifying this spider is greatly appreciated.

I do think this is cyriococus Elegans, one of the dwarf tarantulas.
I ran the location through inaturalist and doesn’t look like any specimens recorded.
A hitchhiker or wayward pet would be my conclusion.


Excellent, keep us posted on any finds.
