Walk-around of the velvet spider, Eresus kollari Rossi, 1846, by Bullyland, new for 2017. The species is distributed from Europe to Central Asia and was previously considered part of the E. niger-complex. To my knowledge this is the only figure of a member of the family Eresidae and honestly one I have always secretly wanted to be made! The figure might represent E. moravicus, but I think E. kollari is the more logical choice.

The figure is painted to depict a male and is 40 mm long (not including appendages), making it slightly larger than 3:1. It is solid, firm piece of PVC with slightly softer legs (not as soft as the Papo wolf spider legs, however).

This unique figure comes highly recommended!

One to the pics!

Couldyou show a comparison pic with the Papo spider ? Or at least tell me the size differences ?

I will this weekend if not before; PM me if you don't see it by Sunday

I am not at home now, but it is comparable; the diameter of the leg spread might be larger on the Papo wolf spider since it has longer legs, but the velvet spider certainly isn't bigger than the Papo wolf spider (meaning, takes up less overall surface area)
