Sold as Avicularia juruensis

Bought this as a.juruensis. someone else mentioned it's not one because it doesn't look like their grown adult female. Wanted to see if it is one or if I bought a different species of Avicularia. Thanks!

      @CEC might be able to help, although identifying Avicularia through photographs is not always reliable, since there are so many variations based upon their location.

      Ok thank you, it looks similar to the other pictures I've seen but if it wasn't then I'm not buying from this oerspe again.

      I am no expert on avics, but with absolutely nothing scientific at all to back it up. I am guessing A. juruensis M2 (aka A. sp Peru purple) Just because you said juruensis and it looks purple. LOL.

      I think it is A. juruensis, but I agree with Vanessa.

      @Aviclove4life I also agree it is likely what it was sold as (juruensis but more specifically, morphotype#2). The only other Avic in the hobby it would be is variegata m#1 (aka sp. Amazonica Manaus) but they show very little hues of purple in my experience, they are mainly blue. The easiest way to identify between the two is based off locality but with out that, we would need a dead specimen for close examination because those two species are very similar.
