"Nightmare" (sold as Lasiodora difficilis)

She was given to me as "Lasiodora difficilis". Just curious if that's what others think.
Very well could be a difficilis. However, they all look very similar with the exception of parahybana.
This is my sub-adult female Lasiodora difficilis. She is about 6" in this photo.
 
The first thing i thought before even clicking on the pic was, oh, nice looking difficilis.

If itcwas sold as a LD, i see no reason to think otherwise.

I'm at a facility where the person who purchased her is long gone. The T is at least 12 years old.
 
L. subcanens and L. difficilis are very similar, if someday the revision comes up, there are chances they can be synonymized.

That said, since L. subcanens are not that common in the hobby, I believe you have a L. difficilis too. A beautiful one, btw.
