The basic color of Tliltocatl albopilosum is dark brown, the front body has a slight golden shimmer, the legs and the abdomen are covered with light brown curly hair, which explains the common name. The spider is said to be calm and peaceful. Exceptions prove the rule. Like T. vagans, T. albopilosum is protected (proof of origin is required in Germany). It is recommended as a beginner spider.
