Sold to me as A. hentzi

Hi I posted several months back asking if someone could ID my girl that was sold as A. hentzi to me. I was told to wait for her next molt. She molted last week and I was told she is a mature female but now I need to know if anyone can help ID her
Hello again! The picture of the spermatheca is still inconclusive. When taking pictures of spermatheca for identification, it has to be lit from the top, magnified, and without the uterus externus blocking the view of the receptaculum. If you don't want to bother, you can send me the molt in the mail and I will identify it for you. PM me if you are interested in that. I have included an example of the spermatheca of Aphonopelma anax and Aphonopelma hentzi from my own collection I took using my stereo microscope. They should serve as examples of what is needed.

I think I got a better picture but I don't know how to attach it to a comment.

The comments only allow adding pictures by URL from another site or by embedding one from another gallery on this site. You can upload additional spermatheca pictures to the Tarantula Spermatheca Sexing gallery then adding it to this post by the "gallery embed" feature of the text editor (it is the icon that looks like a camera). If you need more help with doing this, post a thread in the Troubleshooting forum.

Ok thank you. I'll do that

This is the new picture I got. I'm now thinking she's an anax by the way her spermatheca look. Am I correct in this assumption?
