1" DLS sling

So, I know what this is supposed to be but I was curious if anyone can guess the species. He/she kept trying to climb out the deli cup while feeding so I took the opportunity to snap a picture. I've tried Googling it and there aren't any pictures of slings for this species, nor many for the adult.
The photo is fairly accurate--the legs are a sort of brownish-grey color fading into an orange-red that almost seems to glow, with the chelicerae and underneath of the cephalothorax (sternum?) also that color. There's a golden portion in the middle of the abdomen, and yellow stripes coming up from the sides.

When I first saw it I thought I was sent the wrong tarantula (could still be the case), but it looks so cool I'm not too bothered.
 
Oh my god, I'm so dumb. The slings came unlableled so I just assumed which was which, but you're absolutely right. It's Euathlus sp. Gold :banghead:
