Help species id this avic!

It was labeled Urticans, but when looking at her the T. shop guy said she looked like a metallica. I don't know what to look for to tell the difference can someone help?

      Yes, it looks like Avicularia urticans, now known as Avicularia juruensis Morphotype #2. Those two do have similar white tipped setae but hobby metallica (Now Avicularia avicularia M#6) do not have reddish abdominal guard setae nor purplish hues like Avicularia juruensis M#2. Also Avicularia avicularia hind legs are 10% longer than the front legs, whereas Avicularia juruensis front and hind legs are roughly the same length.
