Large Spider found in northern Thailand. Diameter (including legs) was about 4 or 5 inch.
Probably heteropoda venatoria (domestic huntsman spider). Can anyone confirm the ID?
asterope posted: wow! if im not mistaken, that looks just like a common brown huntsman spider (Heteropoda jugulans) which are very common in brisbane and the warmer parts of australia.
It must be a close cousin, but it's slightly different from the photos found there: www.geocities.com/brisbane_spiders/BrownHuntsman.htm.
