Mystery Sling

Hey guys and gals. So I posted a picture a while back about this guy. It was sold as a ‘mystery sling’ with the letters ET on the tub. I know we can’t go by that but It has since molted and I was wondering if anyone could identify it now. It has a nice blue sheen to it. Thanks

      Still going with Chilobrachys sp.

      ET meaning Earth Tiger.

      The specific species though, that I still dont know. Sorry.

      @Craigo @KezyGLA I'm actually leaning Orphnaecus over Chilobrachys. Reason being, they look much like Chilobrachys and I have never seen this kinda blue on such a young specimen on the much larger Chilobrachys sp., whereas, I have seen some shiny blue on the smaller Orphnaecus slings.
      Both of these genera are very hard to ID at species level so if we're correct I wouldn't expect to determine the species without proper examination.
