General Species Information:
Found in the Adelaide Hills and possibly elsewhere
When we asked Danilo Lüdke about gender differences with Amorbus in general, he said "Indeed there's a distinct dimorphism. Males differ from females in having the hind femora much more thickened, the spines more produced, and the shape of the tip of the abdomen is different, females are also bigger."
