In all probability yes, but given the flaky names they give some of these Ts, there is the off chance it might not be.

99.9% the answer will be yes. It could be a color morph of the usual p. murinus, but nonetheless it I can all but guaruntee that it is a p. murinus.

Why dont you look at it and then compare it to photos on the net of an Usumbara.

This was a big debate for the last couple of years. I just checked Rick West's site and he now has the Usambara listed at a P. murinus-orange form, so I guess they are the same. We were sold an orange one as a P. murinus but the female we had was tan so we didn't breed them. We had read of oranger and tanner ones coming from the same eggsack, but didn't want to accidentally hybridize. I guess it would have been ok afterall.
