I have slings of both, at around 2-2.5'' now...just wondering what's the best way to distinguish them from one another at this point. Thanks guys.

Ventrally, the subfusca will have little white on the front legs. Whereas the ornata will have a good bit of yellow. Although sometimes a bit paled.

Also, dorsally, the subfusca has a rather unique pattern on the head.

Oh, here's some keys for you to use. Dorsally, Ventrally.

it seems like the subfuscas have a wider gap of lighter color shades (that pinkish color for slings) between the darker areas on the first pairs of legs...am i correct here?~ or sorta
