Unknown brown T surrendered to local pet store

I'm terribly sorry for any mishaps; I'm trying to do this from my phone and u think I messed up. I'll fix it as soon as I get home and to my computer.

My local small pet store (not a smart or a co) had someone surrender a bunch of tarantulas to them with no warning. All of them were labeled save for these two. My first thoughts were Havana/Haitian brown or something out of Phormictopus, as the previous owner claimed that they were be faintly purple right after a molt, but I'm also aware that I know basically nothing when it comes to identification.

My apologies for the picture quality; we didn't want to open the tanks and I only had my phone.
 
Okay, so yes I did mess up. I do have more pictures: I'll add them when I'm on my computer.
 
I'd guess it's something within the Phormictopus genus. They tend to get quite colorful as a mature male and to clarify, that is a mature male hence why the coloration is so bright. Sadly, identifying them is not easy as for the species. Maybe someone can chime in on that.

Thank you! ❤
