Theraposidae (Tarantula), Hii!! does any one know this species? Possibly Phlogiellus sp.

Burrowing. T. Top: 1. Male Retrolateral Right Pedipalp 2. Female Spermatheca
Down: Male Dorsal Carapace
I would suggest using the key to Selenocosmiine tribes as well as the character matrix in West, et. al. 2012 to determine the genus of this tarantula. The image here does not clearly show all of the synapomorphies of Phlogiellus.

Reference
West, R. C., Nunn, S. C. & Hogg, S. (2012). A new tarantula genus, Psednocnemis, from west Malaysia (Araneae: Theraphosidae), with cladistic analysis and biogeography of Selenocosmiinae Simon 1889. Zootaxa3299: 1-43.
 
@AphonopelmaTX Thank you so much for that info! Btw, I tried following Nunn et al. (2016) for genus Phlogiellus (2016) but nothing matched, closest didn't have a male holotype too. I'll follow your advice and see! Cheers!
