@Casey K. A fraction under 8 inches. She is a whopper. I mounted and framed her last molt. On the wall in the living room now . She is lovely. I adore her. You must get one, you will not be disappointed.
@Phil I used to have a female that size. I regret trading her. It's so hard to find a true female in the hobby now because so many have been crosses with and mistaken for A. brocklehursti. You have a lovely specimen.
@Casey K. Just looked it up. Very similar indeed, the only thing I can spot easily is that the Brocklehursti does not seem to have as broad a leg marking and lacks more of the "skeleton" type markings too. Must admit never really seen these listed in the U.K. still lovely though and can see how confusing it must all be.
