Just the one successful hatch but what a cracker !

Got mum and dads aberrant patterning and vibrant orange colours, going to be a beauty for some lucky owner in the future !

Gorgeous! Congrats on your hatchling!
Are they really difficult to breed/incubate, compared to leos and fatties?
Hi, sorry for the late reply !

They don't lay as many clutches (certainly as leos can), probably 3/4 clutches as a max (although a friend of mine has had more this year). Myself, I only had single eggs from my females and only a couple were fertile, I think this was as they were first seasons for them. Hopefully next year I will get some more, I have orientalis (2 pairs) and Lichtenfelderi and Araneus as well, so here's hoping !
They also tend to start a little later and finish earlier than leos, in the UK I witnessed mating around late April and egg laying was finished by July so not a massive 'season'......
Incubation wise I had the Luii and Hainanensis at 78C and they hatched in around 65 days, although I lost one fertile egg.
