Apologies for the extremely late reply, been quite busy lately.
Anyway, both of my "P.sp.greens" ending up dying a few months ago, no idea why, both we're being kept perfectly and were both eating the day before they died, still upset over it, they were quite the little characters.
So no recent pics, but heres a picture of the male a few weeks before he passed, he ended up turning a pale redish, pinkish colour, similar to a P.cautus? I'm not sure, haven't seen another Phormic like him. Gorgeous spider, was sad to see them go.
Also I didn't get them from TB, I got them from TSS.
Hard to pin what it may have been. Looks like it could have been cancerides or atrichomatus
My female looked exactly like the male you posted. I almost hated calling her a sp green but that's what she was purchased as.
