Thrixopelma cyaneolum (suspect)

Female
Suspect Thrixopelma cyaneolum species
I can't really see the details but for comparison, these are the spermathecae of my subadult T. cyaneolum:


I looked at the picture of your suspect T. cyaneolum again and I'm not convinced. As @viper69 said, please post a full dorsal picture of her now. :)
 
Ok here she is! @TheklaI @viper69
It took a bit for me to get a pic of her not covering her abdomen. Lol.
After finally getting a good look, she is not T.cyaneolum because she is missing the red hairs on her abdomen. Otherwise she looks like one with the blue color and white striping, and has the same temperament as one (I have a confirmed T.cyaneolum female already). So I am not totally sure what she actually is!! But I'm cool with it either way! I saw her for sale, listed as a H. Sp blue femur...which I had never heard of, I saw the picture of her and decided to purchase because I knew she was either a T.cyaneolum or a very similar species.
 
First off, it looks black. Would need another shot at a different angle. My T cyan, always appears blue no matter what point, fresh/soon to molt etc. The docile nature is rather interesting though as there are so FEW Ts like that. Does it raise it's abdomen up in the air like T cyan may do for defense hahah I do somewhat of what might be blue tint, but nothing remotely like T cyan. Keep us posted though as it gets larger. You have a mystery T for now. H sp blue femur is often passed off as T cyan by people who are sketchy, or don't know anything. The H sp blue femur I owned was more blue as well, but who knows. You have a great T.

Thank you!
She definitely is blue. She is not as blue as my other T.cyan, and she's a different blue than my H.sp. blue/Thrixopelma Lagunas (not sure which one that one is either 😅)
She does act just like a T.cyaneolum. Which I'm stoked about.
She wasn't purchased as a T.cyan, I just got a look at her and figured this T was worth purchasing. And she definitely is.
My T.cyan actually was not blue when I first got her. She was in heavy premolt and she was very dark. It was questionable that she even was one, until she molted. Since then she's always stayed blue.
 
So, not a T. cyaneolum but definitely a cool looking T. :)
It would be really interesting to find out what species she actually is. I'll keep my fingers crossed you'll find an answer. :)
