L. klugi or LP?

I picked this girl up as a "mystery" T. I thought it was an LP until a buddy suggested L. klugi.
What do you all think?
This is not scientific by any stretch. However, due to the overall robust build, the color contrast between the carapace and the opisthosoma, and the scarlet/burgundy setae on the opisthosoma, I would put money on klugi. LP’s have a more consistent overall pinkish hue, and are generally more lanky.
 
Both look pretty much the same, with the same basic individual variances. You will not ever know for sure...another reason mystery ts aren't all they are cracked up to be.
 
^Thank you both.
For what it's worth - I picked it up from a local shop where I know the owner well (another customer brought her in). The owner just didn't know what it was, gave me a good deal on her knowing I loved T's. So, I went into this T with no expectations. Just curious and always eager to learn more about Ts. :)
Thank you all again.
