Help please!

Hi! Im new here. Just caught this t few days ago, its about 3cm. Anyone know's the id? I live in singapore. My guess, it would be a singapore blue. If you set your brightness to high, and zoom in abit, you could see a hint of blue on its body. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
Its a mature male so its not Lampropelma violaceopes (Singapore Blue)

My bet is that its a Phlogiellus species. Very interesting find.
@KezyGLA thanks for the help! And by mature, you mean he's fully grown? Can he grow any bigger? It was a lucky find, i was herping/night drive and saw this little guy on the road (almost ran him over). So i decided to bring him home, since its not the same speices i often caught.
Correct, he won't get any bigger and he will probably only live for a few more months as males die usually within a year of becoming mature. Personally I'd put him back where you found him so he has a chance of mating before he dies.
@Alep please be very careful when doing that where you live. You know there is harsh penalties if you are found doing so without permit. We dont want to see you end up in Changi ;)
@Alep Not anymore. I used to wprk there years ago and have travelled around there a little.

Just so you know, under the Wild Animals and Birds Act, it is illegal to keep, trap or kill wild animals without a licence. If found guilty, You could face a fine of $1,000 per animal and have them confiscated.

If the animals are protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (Cites), offenders without a Cites permit can be fined up to $50,000 per specimen (up to $500,000 in total), and/or be jailed for up to two years.
