Spider ID: What do you reckon this is called?
If geography matters, I saw it in northern Mexico.
okay so… this is a tarantula of the genus Aphonopelma, but this genus is not well studied or understood, especially in northern Mexico. There is actualy much disagreement on speciation within this genus. It looks alot like a a male A. moderatum, which occurs in northern Mexico, but its hard to tell from a small picture. Even in hand, it really takes an expert and a good hand lens sometimes :/
