Ybyrapora diversipes?

Bought a collection off a guy getting out of the hobby, he forgot what this was.
Doesnt resemble any picture or in person one I've seen of that species. Doesn't mean it's not either. A few more pics like that, but without flash washout would be useful. What did peeps at TForum tell you?
Also helps to know size. Do you know age?

@CEC
 
Comparing your photos to known specimens, I'm thinking you're pretty spot on with Y. diversipes, but my opinion might mean little to nothing. I'm not as well informed with Aviculariinae as I am with other subfamilies and I'm red/green colorblind (can't really see the subtle reds/pinks/greens commonly used to ID them). The only other one I can think of that looks similar to me would be A. sp Kwitara River, but given the experience that @viper69 has with this locale and his lack of comments about it, I can't imagine it is.
 
I own A sp Kwitara River (2 different times), and that is NOT it for sure. River is a greenish-blue version of M6 hands down. M6 are straight out deep blue. River's species- not known.

CEC will know for sure, he's bred them. There's few Avics that I ID with one pic, it's not smart at all. Yet people keep trying to do it over and over for some bizarre reason.

It's very similar to a pic I've seen, but not enough color in the OPs pic vs the one I'm familiar with. Also the ones I've seen in person were far more colorful- again many reasons for that too.

Some good shots in natural sunlight are best over artificial lighting.
 
Could be then. As you own it, find some pics that fit your description, rather than us googling.
I'm not looking for you to Google anything for me, just share your experience and knowledge. Google Lens matched it with Y diversipes, FWIW.

I'll get better pics as I can. Thanks for your time and responses!

You missed my point :rofl: . First. I didn't write you asked anyone to google.

I looked at your pic, and this

In sunlight the ends of the legs appear more blue/purple.

All subjective to me is your description above. The ends of the legs-- 1 mm from tarsal claws, entire leg segment/s, lateral, dorsal. medial, ventral etc etc.....Hence, rather than me find a pic that attempts to match your words, and ask you "is it blue like this, this location on the legs ETC ETC ETC??"

It's smarter for you to post some link, and say "it looks like X in the pic I linked you guys to", just like some others have done in the past ;)

You've kept Ts long enough to know that such general descriptions are a bit useless.

Do I think it's Y. diver, yes. do I know for a fact with the images and your subjective, less than detailed description you provided - no.

I don't steer people wrong when I'm not sure 100%.

And I said before CEC will know for sure. Just be patient.

I never trust google lens.

Anyone can pull 5-8 easy Y diver pics right out of google, and they are all correct, but none of them look like yours. Doesn't mean a thing on the surface.

Good luck
