Brachys available within the hobby?

so I finally got around to labelling all my enclosures and pots today and didn't realise o had so many different species of brachypelma

It got me thinking, what species are available within the hobby currently and where can I get hold of them.

After a quick search I've found a wiki that states 18 with 2 different groups

Red leg group:
albiceps. ----
Auratum. ----
Baumgarteni
Boehmei. -----
Emilia. -----
Hamorii. ------
Klaasi. -----
Smithi. -----

Red rump group:
Albopilosum
Andrewi
Aureoceps
Epicureanum
Fossorium
Kahlenbergi. ------
Sabulosum
Schroederi. ------
Vagans. ------
Verdezi -------


(----- = species I have)
I'm aware sabulosum is available. It is a species I've seen mentioned before. And embarrassingly I don't have an albopilosum , but the other species I'm unsure of and haven't heard of before.

If anyone knows or has any of these any info will be appreciated


Sorry for the long post lol.

I've got over 100 B. Sabulosum's....slings, adults and juveniles.
Yea. Was a species I recognised. Same with baumgarteni. It's similar to boehmei and there are supposably a lot of hybrids in the hobby.

Was mainly andrewi aureoceps fossorium and epicureanum I was unfamiliar with

wish I had a bag full buddy. Maybe meet up when you are in Scotland and do some swaps tho - if you don't get an internal cavity search due to strange creepy things in your cabin baggage :)
