Avicularia cf. huriana with nest, Finca Heimatlos, Ecuador
This lovely female has decided to nest in an insect hotel at the Finca Heimatlos accomodation. That makes the adult easy to find, it's always around as soon as the sun sets.
It was surprisingly difficult to identify but experts helped me out. This species has historically been refered to as Avicularia huriana in the tarantula pet trade and systems not yet updated still see it as a valid species name.
In the meanwhile it has been decided that the species is undescribed, possibly because the original specimen was not properly described/preserved (my guess). However, all individuals sharing this morphology likely are the same species, formerly known as Avicularia huriana. Which may continue to be its name once properly described.
For now I'm refering to the old name (which may also become its new name) as otherwise there would be no way to find this species.
