Grammostola sp. 'Maule' ?

Well, that's what I bought her as, but with her last recent molt she dramatically changed colors and now I'm confused. What Grammostola is this?
@Theneil I really need to learn Spanish... I've read Concepcion and Maule are very similar and may or may not be the same species... but anyway, did I get this right: they have this broadened scopula on the metatarsi on leg I to III?
 
@boina i need to learn spanish too. LOL. But when google translated the page this is what i see and i interpret it the same as you.

Metatarsal scapulae

This species differs from the other species of the Grammostola genus found in Chile, due to its highly developed metatarsal scapulas, especially those of legs I, II and III

And link to image.


And since it just molted....


Unfortunately i know nothing of sp. Maul
 
@SkittleBunny No, she's female :)
@Bochelly - thanks for the pic, that really makes it clear!
@Theneil - I already threw the molt away since I know she's female :(. But I get the thing with the scopulae and from what I can see she actually has them, so sp. Concepcion it is!

Thank you Bochelly and Theneil for your help :):)
