Collection location: Mindo, Los Bancos, Pichincha, Ecuador [Click for map]

Who: Danny Newman (myxomop)

No specimen available

Date approximate. No specimen or additional photography. Originally seen and discussed here:


James followed our conversation over at Observation 22259 way back when and gave us a likely candidate for a genus name for the spider; Pamphobeteus.

Reminiscent of:

Observation 22259
Observation 139856
Observation 139857
Observation 139858

to be certain, but these considerably smaller and more plentiful blue stromata (if they are stromata) are not seen on any of the others. James returns to the collection area with some regularity, and has vowed to keep an eye out for this in the future.
