Please help me id this az native T!

Found near Casa Grande, AZ a few days ago.
looks like a replica of my 2 MM hetzi's but I don't want to say thats what they are.
 
Mature male Aphonopelma chalcodes are much darker and much less "fuzzy" than females, appearing almost black when they first achieve their ultimate moult. The locale on this is right for A. chalcodes, but too far west for A. hentzi. I currently have a MM A. hentzi, and he's almost jet-black, no blond or tan on him at all.
