New pick up. P. auratus 3.5" approx

I picked up this P. auratus today. I have been wanting this one for a while. Very happy that I stumbled upon her.
Is this the gold carapace one or is that a different one? I definitely want a Phormictopus in the future!
 
Yes. Both the male and the females get the bronze/goldish carapace the males are supposed to be brighter and get a blueish hue to the legs.
 
@EtienneN Phormictopus sp. ‘Gold Carapace’ is different than auratus. auratus hails from Cuba and is not blue as a sling while GC hails from DR and is blue as a sling.
 
I think that both the male and female end up straight gold. At least according to an article by the BTS
 
Gold carapace is one of the 3 "green" Phormictopus species. Auratus should have a gold carapace and legs regardless of sex.
