Theraphosa apophysis is a species of spider in the family Theraphosidae, found in Venezuela. It generally resembles Theraphosa blondi, and reaches a similar size. Young T. apophysis spiders have pink shading at the end of each leg, which fades with each molt. T. apophysis has an additional stridulating organ on the coxa of the second leg and thinner femora than T. blondi. The ground color of both sexes is coffee brown; the legs and opisthosoma have long scattered orange-brown hairs, with long orange hair on the femora. Mature males have a metallic sheen, described as "wine red" in color.
