    Hello and welcome. I've been learning a bit about some of the native Philippine tarantulas lately. I have one in my collection:

    I have one although they are reclassified as Phlogiellus sp. Baeri, I also have Orphnaecus philippinus, 2 x Orphnaecus sp negros, an Orphnaecus sp. Blue Quezon and an Orphnaecus sp Blue Panay.

    I must say they're very gorgeous.
    How long have you got them?
