Cyriopagopus Paganus, maybe?

This "guy" was sold to me as a Cyriopagopus Paganus, often code name for "lazy/did not care/research" for sellers. I've done a lot of research, and the T looks similar to Cyriop. Schioedtei, maybe? Or Lamp. violaceopes? The T is usually khaki and some dark brown, but the light makes him look blue.
The abdominal markings kinda look like a C. Vonwirthi but I could be wrong, sometimes C. Vonwirthi have more of a green tinge to them as well but then mine went from kinda green to full on purple and black tinged so well...that’s my two cents
 
I appreciate both of your inputs! My only question is, when researching, the C. Vonwirthi has similar markings of a skeleton leg tarantula (the legs only), on the very top of the leg, but not further down. This T doesn't have that. (Sorry, I don't know the names for each segment!). This "guy" is still pretty young, though, so I'm not sure if it has yet to show (about 2.5-3in, I'm guessing). If it is a Vonwirthi, cool! If not... well, back to the drawing board... *sigh* But thank you! I'm just really curious as to what the guy really is.
 
Most likely C. vonwirthi.

Different localities have different appearance. Some with more prominent striping and some without that.
 
Oh! Ok then. Didn't think of that! XD Good to know! And thank you! I wonder how it'll look when the guy's full grown! They do look really nice~
