One of those spiders that eons ago was one of the most popular pets spiders in the hobby and is widespread throughout Central America. Due to being hard to breed and rarely imported they are very hard to obtain. The main localities seen are the Dark black and White one from Costa Rican and the Brown and White ones from Nicaragua. There is also a bluish one from Guatemala which is likely a different species.
