    Its an A. seemanni. The orange spinnerets give it away.

    Certainly not an A. Genic.

    Here is a pic of a genic, it's not the best but you will get the idea.

    And the darker color phase too. They seem to be more desirable.

    It's not a Acanthoscurria geniculata. If I where to guess I would guess Aphonopelma seemani due to the spinneret light brown/ orangish color.

    BTW: I think the individual pictured has molted recently and that is why it is darker in coloration. Aphonopelma seemani tend to change color when approaching a molt IME. That is if it is the species in question.
