Hi, welcome to SpiderID! 🙂 How was the ID of your spider determined? The World Spider Catalog doesn’t appear to recognize Cytropholis bertholomei as a valid species. I do see a Cyrtopholis bartholomaei, I assume that’s what you meant though it’s not uncommon for two species to have such similar names. The editing function for general members still needs to be implemented. I see a bunch of Theraphosidae listed for the area but I don’t know them well enough to be sure I’m filing it correctly if I place it to species.

It looks like Cyrtopholis flavostriatus is the one I need a way of ruling out.

(Note to admin.) Genus page needed for Cyrtopholis.
