Bought from someone, help identifying?

This tarantula can not be reliably ID'd to species from a picture and with no collection/ locale data. It is a member of the iodius species group which is made up of A. iodius, A. chalcodes, A. johnnycashi, and A. eutylenum. A. johnnycashi can be immediately removed from consideration since this is a blonde tarantula. According to Hamilton, et. al. (2016), there are no physical characteristics that can be used to distinguish the three blonde species in the idodius species group. They can only be distinguished from DNA and by geographic location. Since geographic location is not provided, a determination to species can not be made.
