I found this specimen under a rock in the Kruger national park in
South Africa, it was very docile and slow. I wanted to collect one but since it was a protected area I left it.

I found many of these under the rocks near one of the lodges.

Hadogenes Troglodytes would be my guess, u said they were pretty easy to find and considerin how common H. Troglodytes are in the pet trade thats what ide say it was but thats just based on where u found it, how many u said u found and from what i remember H. Troglodytes looks like :L

I found two under the first ten rocks I looked under. They are plentiful but as I said they are in a protected area otherwise I would've kept one.

Paucidens has yellow bands at the posterior edge of each tergite whereas Troglodytes is just plain brown or grey Very Happy

You cant ID hadogenes sp. just like that, there are servel sp in that genus and i dont belive there is a ID key around for that genus. So when ppl id they Hadogenes as paucidens there is a chance its not.

Kejser, Kejser, Kejser . . . Razz

Of course you can't say with certainty that it's Hadogenes troglodytes (though it's a pretty reasonable guess), but you CAN say with certainty that it's not H. paucidens, because it's clearly lacking the olive banding. This also eliminates H. bicolor.

By the way, it's a female, if anyone's interested.
