Huntsman Spider

Ed. Note: We have already responded to immediately regarding our issues with doing these identifications, but we couldn’t resist posting this image which we believe is one of the Huntsman Spiders in the family Sparassidae, also known as the Giant Crab Spiders

    It looks very similar to Hepetoda maxima. The species was recently discovered in the caves of Laos. Depending on size, the oddities of the description fit very well.
