This African species closely resembles both Augacephalus junodi and Augacephalus breyeri and has been confirmed (R.gallon pers. com.) as the real Augacephalus ezendami. As a close relative of the genus Ceratogyrus, Augacephalus requiring similar environmental conditions. As with all harpactirines do not keep this species too humid.

A very attractive Baboon spider and something a little different.
