Got this one a couple of weeks ago for pretty cheap since it had been a trade-in to the store I got it from. Have it pretty much narrowed to New World, as I can see the urticating patch, no idea beyond that, except possibly U.S. Aphonopelma. Looks similar to Phillip's G. alticeps, as well. Any ideas?

The cephalothorax says, "Aphonopelma" to me. Unfortunately, that leaves you with a chocolately brown Aphonopelma, not exactly a unique spider. Unfortunately, that's about all the ideas I've got, I don't know enough to differentiate from there.
