Brachypelma Albopilosum
I've got this T from a seller that said its a female albo, i wonder if its really a female or not. Thanks for the help!
@Monbee I'll add in maybe it was a bit much for me to say the seller "lied", because mistakes happen, but if it was an experienced breeder/keeper that sold it to you they really should have known.
 
I had a 'moult confirmed' female albopilosum end up male. The male accessory organs are very prominent for this species and someone with less experience, or who hasn't made an effort to actually look at what the spermathecae of this species looks like, can make the mistake of thinking they are seeing female organs.
It should never happen that someone makes a mistake with this species, as the female spermathecae are fused and look nothing like the male organs. Some species are more difficult to tell the difference with, especially if they are smaller, but this isn't one of them.
