7cm DLS A. bicoloratum / B. boehmei

Freshly molted, managed to get excuviae before being destroyed. Seems like a female :D
@AphonopelmaTX You said it's possible to determine whether it's A. bicoloratum or B. boehmei by looking at spermatheca. Here's the best picture I could get. Excuviae has only 7cm DLS.
 
I still can't tell. In the first image, there appears to be a spermatheca typical for the shape of an Aphonopelma species (two mounds as opposed to one trapezoidal receptacle in Brachypelma) , but in the second there doesn't appear to be a spermatheca at all. At 7 cm, a female's reproductive organs should be obvious under any amount of magnification. I'm just not seeing anything that makes it obvious in these pictures.
 
@AphonopelmaTX It was difficult to move it freely, I'm pretty sure there was spermatheca and it was just flapped downwards. I'll check again with next molt but for now, after doing some research I'm pretty sure it's Aphonopelma.

All I had to take pictures was my phone, that might be reason why it's not greates quality.
