Moved from Tigrosa aspersa.

Thanks Lynette!

Hogna aspersa
is more likely. In general Hogna helluo is supposed to be a lighter color with more pattern on the carapace.

This one looks like it has a full carapace stripe and there's almost no banding on the legs so I don't think it's T. aspersa. What do you think on this one now that we're more familiar with them? I'm leaning leaning T. helluo but there's some faint banding.

Moved from Spiders.
