    Is anyone familiar with Avicularia sp. Columbia, and know if it is truly a separate species of Avicularia?

    I know nothing about A sp Colombia. All I can tell you is that the fact that it is called Avicularia sp. anything means it has not been described/ recognized by the scientific community. That means that taxonomically no one can exactly tell you if they are their own species. They are, however, recognized by the hobby community as something worth keeping seperated until the scientific community gets it figured out.

    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

    I suspect they'd be considered a Colombian variant of purpurea by Fukushima. They aren't much different at all.
