Is this a Lasidora?

Freshly molted. Relatively. I say this because of the brightness of the red, the clarity of the hairs, etc..

Loòks like a dificillus..
Thanks. When I bought it they called it something else. As time went on, it kicked hairs everytime I opened to feed or change water. The hairs got me one day on a couple fingers. Itched with red bimps for three weeks. My klugi is the complete opposite.

Yeah, every spider is an individual. A G pulchripes was the most aggressive sp. I ever kept..which is NOT common..

I understand. My pulchripes is just plain mean. I say she throws threat pose tantrums. But she is great because she is always rearranging her home. She is mega strong can move everything in there. I just let her do her.
How fast the Lasiodora (?) grew, resembled others, and irritated my skin, I started to realize that it was not what I ordered and the seller is no longer in business.

I found one labled "leticia" that looks similar..you may have what they told you. Description by color/physical characteristics can be very iffy..any other info would be great. It sure looks like a dificilus to me though..carapace, legs, abdomen..all of it..
To be fair though, there are many spp. that look similar.

Yeah this is 100% Lasiodora. I think it looks more like Parahybana than Difficilis from these pictures, but it's definitely one or the other. This is a male also btw
