Cyrtolobus discoidalis, perhaps? Looks similar but not exact, and I am by far no expert.


Thanks Kyle!
Looks like you've been busy. :) Much appreciated.


Cyrtolobus discoidalis
Good call! Females like this one have the second pale marking on the crest reduced to a spot - in males, as in other species, it forms a crossband.

It would be interesting to know whether all specimens of this species have the abdomen yellow to green. This color usually fades in dried specimens.

Thanks, Andy!
I've taken pictures of several of these - I'll check them out and let you know. And if I see more, I'll take more. =) They're really quite cute little critters.

Hi, I believe this is Cyrtolo
Hi, I believe this is Cyrtolobus fenestratus.

Thanks -
Andy, what do you think?

Cyrtolobus fulginosus
I think that I made an error - this is not C. discoidalis, which has a shorter crest. Sorry about that!

Oh, thanks
for the return visit! I'll move it. =)
