Morning all.
I know these things are virtually impossible from a photo, but anyone fancy making a stab at this? sold to my Wife as a Chile Rose.

Looks like what is sold in the pet trade as Paraphysa parvula

There is Euathlus truculentus and Paraphysa parvula which both look the same to me, I don't know the difference between them, I think the E. truculentus grow larger than the parvula but i'm not sure on that one. not my kind of thing

Trunculentus has a green carapace and is easy to tell apart

If you got it for the price of a Chile rose (£15-20), you may have scored somewhat as these usuaslly go for a little bit more as far as I know

I did keep a parvula a few years ago but it was given to me, I didn't take much notice of it, just put food in to prevent it's demise.
I'm not into NW terrestrials at all, I keep maybe 6 or 7 and probably won't replace them when they die.
Much more into Southeast Asian and African things.

Great, thanks all
It was actually a freebie, a friend of my Wifes got bored of it so gave it to her.
