Freshly molted MM Avicularia ________?

I know i know...it's my fault...but no one is perfect. I'd like to perhaps have him meet that special girl. Unfortunately I'm not sure which avic it is. My best guess is either A. metallica or A. avicularia.
That would be a nice surprise, as I don't have it on my list of avics I've purchased.

UPDATE: What about a Avicularia juruensis? It's also not on my list, but that's because I had removed it (i thought it died).
I havent had one but A. juruensis M2 is purple. (a few species got lumped together. Urticans purple variant, peru purple, and i think a couple more)

Yes this guy has the characteristics of juruensis Morphotype #2 (ex sp. Peru Purple/urticans). Not purpurea, easy way to tell the difference in pics is the pink toes. A. purpurea lack them. Also juruensis MMs are typically much larger, purpurea males are 4" max whereas juruensis m#2 males are typically much larger.
 
As far as i can see from this angle, no bulbs
Only MMs lack pink toes on pedipalps with pink toed Avicularia species, not to mention, the legginess and overall one color (purple in this case). This is absolutely a mature male.

Thank you for the correction and input
