I got nothin' for ya with the ID help, but I got lots of compliments for your amazing looking spider.

In the middle pic, I'm seeing a hint of reddishness. Can I guess P. rufilata? But it doesn't have the striped knees. The last pic looks pretty subfusca. I'm just guessing...

I've studied subfuscas recently, that looks like one to me. I intend to get a few. I'm no Poecimon master though.

Thanks everyone for the feedback.

This was my first Poec bought along with a P rufilata female bought from a pretty reputable person that sells here. I PMed them yesterday just to let them know but haven’t heard back yet. I still have a nice looking healthy spider so I’m not too bummed about it.

I bought both the smithi and rufilata as females. I haven’t checked molts because of who I bought them from but I guess I need to check their next molts just in case. The subfusca pattern looks female to me, but I actually was thinking the rufilata’s pattern looked a bit male a while back.
