Tarantula from Cayman Islands

This tarantula turned up in the Cayman Islands.
Any help for ID is greatly appreciated!

There are no described Theraphosidae from the cayman´s till now.
But from the surrounding islands we know genera like Cyrtopholis, Citharacanthus and Phormictopus.
So this maybe belongs in one of these genera.
In the genus Cyrtopholis there are only smaler species, so i´m tend more to Citharacanthus and Phormictopus.
Do you preserved this specimen?
 
Sorry i dont care so much about the market, especial in other countries.
But i guess there are some other Phormictopus spp. from Hispaniola and maybe also Cuba.
