Chilobrachys sp. “South Thailand”
South Thailand Blue (1cm)
The comparison of different taxonomic features suggests that its not a close relationship to Chilobrachys sp. electric blue which other than obvious colour differences, grows larger and has only a single-lobed spermethecae.
The species was found by us exclusively in fully shaded areas. It inhabits deep holes and caves in rocks, which it spins out. The species seems somewhat more opportunistic in the choice of habitat than Chilobrachys sp. “tropical blue”. Like these, it was also found in rocks, but also inhabited lower areas and preferred full shade in heavily overgrown areas.
