Sold as Brachypelma baumgarteni

I purchased this a brachypelma baumgarteni... thoughts??
What is the DLS of the spider? It looks like it's still pretty small, but it could be an optical illusion.
It looks like it definitely could be B. baumgarteni, but it also looks a lot like B. boehmei. So as said above, a better lit picture would be necessary to make a more definitive identification.
 
Oh very nice! However, I have to say that now it looks like a pretty obvious hybrid between B. emilia and either B. baumgarteni or B. boehmei. Does it kick hairs very often?
If so, I would say most likely B. boehmei x B. emilia
I can't say much for baumgarteni as I don't have one, but my B. boehmei will kick hairs at anything.
The very dark and striking triangular marking on the cephelothorax looks very emilia.
 
@Beedrill She's quite placid so far , mind you so is my boehmi like I said she's still very much a juvie & I wonder if that black will take over and darken up on her carapace , shes nearly 2" body , maybe 1.5" at the very least & I'm still not able to get any decent pics of her legs ect as she's still hunched up in the corner after her moult. I literally had her 1 day , shipped from the netherlands 4 days in the postal service and the next morning she's on her back Typical
