Given to me as a Greenbottle Blue - the red rump came through last moult now making me think B. vagans but it has had a blue tint up to this point which is still present on its legs. I was fairly certain it was a Cobalt until this last moult.
Definitely not a C. cyaneopubescens or vagans juvenile, Im going with it being a juvenile Phormictopus sp. probably and most likely P. cancerides.
 
@Flexzone You're right, it's certainly not a GBB or a vagans, but I don't think it's a P. cancerides either. Mine have always stayed a single color, no variation throughout the body. It's also quite stocky for a P. cancerides.
 
What do you mean by cobalt? That is the common name of a few Ts.

My best guess would be Thrixopelma cyaneolum (Cobalt Red Rump) Please add more pictures when it gets older. Preferably, freshly molted.
 
Definitely looks like T. cyaneolum.

Whats its demeanor? T. cyaneolum is a very chill spider, almost never hides or burrows and eats well. Not a real heavy webber either.
 
Maybe a Euathlus sp. blue?.....nah.....hmmmm....I will agree with thrixopelma. It's appearance is closer to that sp.
