Unknown Thrixopelma

The seller told me it’s not T cyaneoleum because she lacks the red hairs on her abdomen. Any idea of an ID? Not planning on breeding her, just wanted a blue Thrixopelma.
It does look like cyaneolum...but the seller is right, a true cyaneolum would have deep red hairs on the rump.

Homeomma sp blue was/is most often confused for them and the lack of red hairs was usually the biggest giveaway....but I am not sure if that species even goes by that name any longer.

Its a real beauty

Oh sheesh! I'm doing some searching on here, and yeah, it looks like it might be. Might it be easier to get a better ID after a fresh molt? I'm so curious to see what that blue will look like after she gets new clothes.

She does do the butt raise my ockertis do, though. Is she possibly a Thrixopelma hybrid? I bought her with that possibility in mind.
