Copied this from website "The Australian Tarantula Association" where i got the pic from

This is an image of the new species Grant is introducing to the hobby, another goliath species, but this time in the Theraphosidae, bery narsss (as Borat would say) and I'm sure you guys will see the same setal morphology that made sp. strenuus so easy to ID. The longer leg setae curl distally, outward, like velcro only not as extreme. However, the setal counts are different, as is most likely the size (these are the biggest Aussie theraphosid I've ever had the pleasure to see, you know the ones they say "dinner plate size", well, this is a true dinner plate monster), and some other things I can't mention right now. Clearly part of the N.Qld material, very colourful for an Aussie T, appealing in every way

Oh yeah, you might see me shift between the species name strenua and strenuus. As this spider sits in limbo between the genera Selenocosmia (ending in "a", of the male) and Phlogius (ending in "us", of the female), so the species name will change to suit the genus. Once it gets officially shifted into the Phlogius, sp. strenua will chage to sp.strenuus.

also found it to be called "Ghost Ornamental Tarantula- P. Pederseni" being sold for $45 on monsterfishkeepers.com

Saint George killed the last dragon, and he was called a hero for it. I've never seen a dragon, and I wish he would have left at least one. Saint Patrick made a name for himself by running the snakes out of Ireland, leaving the place vulnerable to rodent infestation. This business of making saints out of men who exterminate their fellow creatures has got to stop. All I'm saying is, it's starting to get a little lonely up here at the top of the food chain.
