I don't think it's a true blue-legged. I can see banding on the legs. It's probably an S. morsitans. Is that your's Alonso?

It belongs to the Oregon Bug zoo of the entomology department, I came across their site the other day and the pic mesmerized me as to what pede it was. My s.morsitans has way lighter coloration than that one

Yeah, it's only a possibility. Perhaps a different morph or ssp. of morsitans. The only reason I'm guessing that is the banding on the legs. That's certainly no guarantee either though. Example: I have 3 morsitans ssp. with yellow legs.
Alonso, you could e-mail them for info on the pede. I'd be curious to know what specie it is.

I can remember that their site had it labeled as a wild caught from jamaica
