Your guess is as good as mine. I am a total newbie to this.

I would say the aphonopelma iodius myself.
The tarantula pictured is a MM.

Most MM Aphono's are normaly A LOT darker, including A. iodius.

He looks rather old and dull as well, so getting a possible ID is almost impossible now.
 
not necessarily because the guy told us that this tarantula was found in california. the two species i gave (iodius seems most probable) are found in cali and they look like it so please read the description before you make moronic statement.

I simply said it was a MM (mature male). No need to explain it. It being caught means that it was most likely wondering around and about, during the breeding season, looking for a female. Yes the species you so believe it to be, is from cali. I never said it was not that species Mich. It is a MM. Meaning it has about 2 years left to live, tops. I've dealt with Aphonos for 11 years, not being a "moron" or anything, just explaining myself based on my observations. Moronic? hah do you google everything to base your answer on.
