At that size I don't think too many people are going to be able to help you out. I have had a few slings in the past and I don't remember them looking like that but then again who knows.
Your best bet is to wait a bit longer till some of the adult characteristics start to show themselves.

How big is it? Like 1.5" or so?

Yeah Becky I agree, it doesn't even look like a Brachypelma spp. to me. THeres just something about it's shape and characteristics.

Your going to have to wait for a couple more molts for anyone here to properly ID it.

I have a B.albiceps (formerly ruhnaui) and its definately not what mine looks like. Mine is only 1.25" right now.

Yeah, but even at juvie stages you can tell if it's a Brachypelma spp. or not just by the structure, and Brachypelma juvies usually have their adult coloring showing already.

It's totally the wrong shape for a Brachypelma. Looks more Chilobrachys spp. to me... or that type.

I agree, kinda hard to know for now. And I dont think thats a B.rhunaui/albiceps... Wait until its a decent size probably by 3rd instar... It should look like this...

that looks more like an asian species, maybe a species within the selenocosmiinae family, maybe a chilobrachys species;)

Cheers
