Poecilotheria Highland or Lowland (or both)

Here are 2 Poecilotheria AF that I believe to be Highland (top) and Lowland (bottom).
I have a male LL that should mature soon so looking for confirmation that I have both HL and LL and ca attempt breeding accordingly. Unless others think differently?
Many thanks in advance 😊
What were they labeled as when you got them? Whatever "land" you got them as, you might as well keep it that way. I find them to be very difficult to separate them apart because I've seen some HL that looked like LL and vice versa. I've also seen sac mates that look completely separate and different from one another despite coming from the same sac. I've seen some siblings in person where one female looked LL and the other two looked HL which the three were siblings.

What I'm getting at is that it's very difficult to tell them apart just by looking at them and not consider some possibilty of variation between siblings.

Here's my P. sp. "Highland" (Supposedly) a bit still fresh from a molt. I trust my sources where I get my tarantulas, but she sure looks LL to some people:

They were purchased as they appear (one HL, one LL) but I don't have the confidence in the supplier as you do. Only cos I have had no other dealings, no question on integrity etc.
I have had both for approx 5 years and only really looking for dome validation to make sure I don't pair HL with the LL male.
The 'tattoo' colour does seem darker and rhere is a slight difference in the carapace pattern so I am leaning to HL and LL as described but I am not a pokie specialist. 👍
Thanks for the coment and sharing the other link too 😊
