Is this g.pulchra sling?

Got this last month, molted and doesnt look like g pulchra slings i see on google,
How big is it? None of my slings had a pink carapace like that when I got them around 1". I'm inclined to say no.
 
If that's the case, at that size I'd say it's still possibly a G. pulchra. This is what mine looked like just under an inch, before molting for the first time in my care.
It's got a pinkish tinge to it, was probably a lot pinker fresh out of the molt, but that was prior to me buying it so I'm not entirely sure. If it doesn't start to darken up in the next few molts though, I'd be pretty suspect. It should start to look like this after it hits a little over an inch.

 
@Aleetist In the first image the T was JUST under an inch (but bigger than 3/4"), second image is after the next molt a little OVER an inch... This species grows at a glacial pace. :confused:
 
Alright. Hope its a puclhra ! Ill wait until next molt (though it just molted a few days back)
