Female adult of C. chiapanensis, anterior view. Photo in captivity, imported to USA with bananas from Guatemala.

Note - Typical hunting posture. Photographed in captivity, imported to USA with bananas from Guatemala. Female closer view of typical red chelicerae. This species DOES NOT have medically significant venom - and can be considered harmless to humans, yet is frequently confused with various species of potentially dangerous Phoneutria (See Phoneutria boliviensis for the Central American region)
