irminia and crawshayi rank among my favourite species...nice pics mate Smile
i have to differ about smithi though...just to be difficult!
the most beautiful spider title belongs to the entire genus of Psalmopoeus for showy, flashy ones...and (grudgingly) to Avicularia versicolor and what i have just discovered today was redescribed as Avicularia diversipes...formerly A sp fasciculata, not to mention the amazing Cyriopagopus sp "Singapore blue".
for less showy and flashy things...there are Selenocosminae, pretty much every one of them...Aphonopelma (again most of them...with "New River", "Carlsbad Green", and several others bordering on downright flashy)
the list goes on and on! i had better stop now before i type a novel lol
not that smithi aren't nice...just putting it into perspective a bit cause i feel compelled to stick up for some of the less appreciated and less trendy ones!

nonono...hehe Smile The most beautiful tarantula title belongs to the entire genus of Poecilotheria for not just showy and flashing ones...Poecilotheria's are majestic cheers how can u not see so king
You know that in latin regalis means majestic....therefore!!!!

Yes, I agree with Selecosminaee and Aviculariinae, especially Psalmopoeus and Chilobrachys sp.. but I think you oversaw the subfamily Ornithoctoninae. Lampropelma violaceopes....Haplopelma lividum???? And how can you not mention Poecilotheriinae's P.metallica?

Poecillotheria are well overrated mate! not saying i hate them, but there are such nicer ones out there, in my view...
i know someone who thinks Peekies look like someone threw up on a perfectly good spider Wink
that's a bit harsher than my view but it's well funny!

anyway, who needs them when you can have S calceatum and H maculata?

(all in good fun mate hope you realise btw, it's all opinions and taste! when i say something is overrated, it's because it seems to me everyone gets them and ignores lesser known spiders that if you look at them for just a few minutes longer, you will see beautiful characteristics that are not instantly visible..."flashy" spiders yield all their visual appeal right away...not that that is a bad thing! i just like subtlety Smile and since everyone already likes the "overrated" spiders, i can champion the "underrated" ones since they are less known/appreciated)

oh i didn't neglect Ornithoctinae, i mentioned Cyriopagopus sp "Singapore Blue", which is what Lampropelma violaceopes is also known as, since the description is doubted. not that i know better, but they look alot more like Cyriopagopus than Lampropelma to my eye...
H lividum's are nice, i'm more fond of minax myself (subtle, again, big and just beautiful), but lividums are undeniably tasty.
have you seen Coremiocnemis sp "Malaysian blue femur" by the way? another example of Selenocosminae...and blue too!
don't forget i did say i would have to stop listing spiders before i wrote a whole book Very Happy

i also criminally neglected Paraphysa parvula, Phormictopus cancerides, Lasiodora parahybana and some other beauties!

I understand it's a matter of good fun, and this made me laugh loud
Laughing

I must have missed Coremiocnemis sp "Malaysian blue femur"??? Do u have a picture?
You mention minax as one of your favorites. I agree, H.minax is a very nice tarantula. A dark pearl!
Poecilotherias are not overrated......Grammostola rosea is!
I dont think tarantulas have to be blue to reach my attention. ..I know there are many nice sp. out there. Can wait to see em with my eyes!
I think I will spend some time looking up less known species..........Thanks corpselight!

i just did a google search for Coremiocnemis sp "Malaysian blue femur" and a few pics from arachnoboards came up.

well with rosea, i agree if we're talking about a spider that everyone has to own as a starting spider, cause it's "docile" blah blah blah...but honestly, it's hard to beat a freshly moulted rosea. personally, i reckon they are overrated for docility and underrated for looks. they are actually beautiful spiders: silvery hairs, the metallic pink everyone focuses on, and what i've noticed on the femurs in good light to be a subtle metallic blue. nice stuff!
personally, Peekies in my mind are overrated...cause they all look vaguely similar, and...well dunno, they're nice enough, but everyone goes on and on and on about them...there are other species to talk about! that's all i am saying, i guess!
i don't hate any species, just some i prefer more than others Smile
also, i would mention all Brachypelma in the same list of "overrated starter T's" as Grammostola, incidentally lol
my first tarantulas were Ceratogyrus darlingi Very Happy another underrated species, with subtly beautiful markings and colouration...they just won me over when i saw them!

also, some spiders are fun to watch grow through changes, rather than just focusing on the "finished product". Phormictopus cancerides is a prime example of this...blue spiderlings that slowly turn into large spiders that often have beautiful purple highlights on their carapaces. amazing! granted, some are brown, but they all have at least entertainingly confident personalities!
