Sold as Pamphobeteus fortis

Sold to me as a P. fortis, but looks more like a G. pulchra. Very docile with a 5" leg span. My only reserve about calling it a pulchra are the red hairs on the undersides of the femurs.

Does anyone have a guess?
Under close examination, the red hair covers almost the entire underside of the spider, excluding the abdomen. All the abdomen hair appears to be black. Could this be a G. acteon in pre-molt? The only pictures of them I can find are of juvinals who have bright red abdomens.
 
acteons have hair on the opisthosoma. the person who sold this tarantula was OFF course badly. i like pulchras ;P
