Sold as Caribena versicolor

Pinktoe i rescued .was sold to them as versi but obviously its not .any thoughts guys? All help is good help!
Not an expert, but it looks like a MM A. avicularia (morphotype ?) to me. Can you get a clearer picture of his pedipalps?
 
Could be morphotype 6, formerly known as A. metallica. Would need a few more pics to be more confident, even then many Avics are not able to be ID via pics reliably.
 
Thanks guys! I think its gettin towards molting time since its just killin everything n not eatin .lol once i get a good molt i will take more .and hopefully get a 100% sexing
 
If it's a mature male, you won't get another molt. Also, that would explain the low to no eating thing. I find mature avicularia males to be picky non eaters.
 
I'd poop my pants if that were a MM. Avicularia avicularia (no matter the morphotype) lose the colored setae on the abdomen. Which we can see that is not the case. Although possible for a m#6 MM to be that small, I haven't seen one. They typically mature at 5-6+" DLS.
