-Colombian Dwarf Blue-
Pseudhapalopus sp. 'Blue'
-One of several small, slow growing, and brightly colored spiders to enter the hobby in recent years. Accurate classification is still pending for many species and are commonly given hobby descriptors to help differentiate them. This species is reported to have originated in Colombia, but many spiders in that region also demonstrate overlapping ranges with neighboring countries.
-New world terrestrial. In my experiance with these spiders, they prefer to burrow and regularly move significant amounts of substrate around during burrowing and excavation behaviors. Once satisfied, the adults are frequently visible in their habitat and seem less nervous than many other dwarf species. Likely found in tropical and sub-tropical forest floors.
-As their common name implies, these spiders remains fairly small. 2.5-3" is fairly typical of adult legspan.

All sizes are approximations, as these are living creatures some variables will occur. Measurement for spiders is 'DLS' (diagonal leg span). This measurement method is determined when the animal is at rest from the front leg's natural extension to the rearmost legs natural resting position.
