Lasiodora (...) ?

I first thought this big tarantula was a B. Albopilosum until someone told me it looks more like a Lasiodora Parahybana or a L. Klugi. What do you think?
There's no red on a B. albopilosum like that rump there. The albo has the orange hairs, but that it's the same all over.
I agree that it's a Lasiodora. Could be parahybana if it's newly molted (as they lose the red over time) or an L. klugi if it isn't "fresh".

I would say L. klugi. It looks like it's been a while since it last molted and the rump sure is red. These days though... people have been breeding parahybanas with klugis, so there's some "mixed breeds" floating around the hobby.

Is her carapace slightly green-ish or is it just me/the photo?

Thanks for the answer :) Her carapace is not green-ish, must be the photo. I'm satisfied with her being either a Klugi or a difficilis.
