Aphonopelma sp. "diamondback" - 0.1

Unknown locality
After seeing this pic, and the color change mine made, I’m starting to think mine is diamondback. It was sold to me as a.Chalcodes. I never paid attention to the subtleties. I posted a pic a few days ago if anyone is willing to correct me. Now I’m curious.

the diamond backs definitely have a color fade from front to back, yours looks like a classic Chalcodes. Check the femur colors, yours are consistent F to B

Gotcha. Thank you. what had me questioning it was how her back legs turned darker. Looking back over the two, I can see what you’re talking about. Thanks again.
 
and some color morphs of A chalcodes, those inner femurs will be a buff color, and not the mink. But they will almost always be fairly uniform. The diamond backs go from gold femurs to mink. Even the tibias go through a fade
