Chiapas Local

Can anybody ID this good-looking son of a gun? I find myself getting really interested in the spiders of Chiapas and vicinity. I'm just drawn to limnal spaces I guess, having spent much of my life bordering Mexico to the north. Perhaps it's time to pay attention to the southern border for a bit.
Isn't his abdomen too orange-red for a vagans? Every vagans I've ever seen had a maroon-red abdomen, if not out and out scarlet.
 
I’ve just read theyare semi arboreal so it could have been fed up with its tree and looking for a new home! But native to Peru? Maybe an escaped pet?!
 
Aren't ockerti more pink than orange-red in the abdomen? I don't think it's one of those, between the misplaced location and the
oh-so-very orangeness of that boo-tey.
 
I have seen some that have really orange abdomen with black/grey legs but I’ve seen more with an as you say pinker abdomen and they have like pinky hairs on the legs too. Could be a mongrel, Thrixopelma/vagans hybrid! That’s confused about where it belongs and has gone on some sort of pilgrimage to Central America!
