I.D.ing from a pic is never 100%, and the pic you have is REALLY poor. It could be anything from what I see. Is there a chance you could get a better pic and an approximation of size ?

not.......i could be wrong and nowhere near that knowledgeable...since the pic ist that good it very well could be either...
i just looked at the carapace, i think with brachy's its alittle more flat...but talkenlate would be a better person to weigh in on it though

Well still i think you are!! My answer was a wild guess because it looked like a B. smithi to me. The legs were orange and had black at the bottom of the feet. So still your probrarly right i try to gain knowledge from other peeps on here im not expert but i try!!

i's say a. bicoloratum as well - the adomen and carapax do not look like a brachypelma species, but that might as well be the pic.

is the carapax slightly raised (like an elongated hill) and are both the capapax and the abdomen rather oval than round? that would speak for an aphonopelma bicoloratum.

Nah, I don't think its a Megga R, lacks the long red abdomen hairs and bushy back legs, as far as i can tell in that photo. Mine looks nothing like that, nice spider tho.....

ah, that's way better. i was wrong, definitely not aphonopelma - i guess it's pamphobeteus after all.
