Looks Like Acanthoscurria But Not Sure...

Just recently purchased this beauty as an unknown and still can't figure it out. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
Thats most likely an Aphonopelma spp. - probably seemanni. I wouldn't compare it to Acanthoscurria... look at the stripes on the patella, much too bright for most Acanthoscurria, also the joints/area around the carapace is very bright.

But I've never seen any of the striped Acanthoscurria in real life, so I may be wrong. I have a seemanni sitting next to me, looking very, very similiar...

I did think it might be seemanni but it is mostly jet black other than the few redish/brown hairs on the abdomen. Also the spinnerets are not brown, and the underside is also jet black. I was told it came in with an import from Chile.

My seemanni is jet black, too. Only the abdominal hairs are reddish and the stripes range from a yellow/earth color to white/gray, depending on post/premoult status. You're right about the underside and the spinnerets, though - guess it isn't seemanni after all! :rolleyes:
 
I know this post is five years old, but I'm almost positive this is a Lasiodorides striatus from Peru. I don't know if the poster is still around or if he ever had it correctly identified but I thought I'd put in my two cents.
