Is this a B vagans???

Still sitting on the moult!
It's still too fresh, so wait for it to harden up because the colors are still too light since he's freshly molted. Hard to say what Brachypelma he/she is since a good majority of the red rump Brachys look alike.
 
Unfortunately i don’t think a definitive ID can be made off of a picture. Best somebody can say is it COULD be a vagans. But IIRC there are several species (such as B. sabulosum) which will look seemingly identical to B. vagans and i would assume that features such as spermathica shape would beed to be used to properly ID.

Disclaimer: i am not a taxonomist and my knowledge of taxonomy is sadly very lacking so take everything i say with skepticism.
 
@Theneil I would assume that one asking for a I. D. By photo knows that's all the data we have to make the guess. If they don't include pics of spermatheca and other parts of the t the best we can do is guess based on the image provided.
 
@Noah Blades I realize that people do the best they can, but there are a lot of people that will just assume the first suggestion is correct and label as such because they may not know that there are so many similar looking species. I just wanted to make sure they are aware that certain species cannot be diffinitively ID’d by pictures.

@Theneil fair enough just a guess based on the image and images like it
