Brachypelma smithi or hamorii?

This little guy is about 3" DLS and was sold as a B. smithi, but it was only 1/2" when I got it. I've looked at all the side by side pictures and I feel like I change my mind each time I look at them. Opinions? Thanks!
B.hamorii and B.smithi are the same, they were thought to be different species but they are actullay the same and it is now known as the B.hamorii


Not really.
I have read that article and it is interesting. According to the article, there are still two species. The B. smithi is not simply the B. hamorii and they are not one in the same. They are two separate species from two separate regions of Mexico. However, there was confusion as to which was which and what was being sold as the B. smithi was actually the B. hamorii.
