I'm probably going to be getting some Pamphobeteus spiderlings later this week. I am deciding between getting a few Platyomma's or a few South Ecuador's.

Any recommendations? Differences? Similarities?

The real platyomma does not exist in the hobby so i would take South Ecuador's instead.

Ah, I was not aware of this. James is having a "getting out of the hobby" sale and he had them listed. I have cared for Pampho's before, but this will be my first personal one.

ultramarinus and antinous are my favs, but they are all cool!

There may not be the real platyomma, but there is a sp. Platyomma that is common in the hobby. Whatever it eventually turns out to be, it's a neat spider that I recommend. Nice pink highlights on males, and the females tend to be more brown compared to the other darker Pamphos.

Yes they are sold as sp. platyomma but comes from ecuador.
The real P. platyomma is located in southern Brazil around Sao Paulo:)

Were sp. Platyomma also sold as sp. Ecuador II or something like that? I believe I remember reading somewhere that different imports were calling them different things but were probably the same species.
