Sorry, I do not have experience between the two in captivity. But, what I do know, is its believed they have different coloration/form because of environmental adaptions, (ex: darker = absorb more warmth in colder climates = higher elevations).

only way you would know this if you went and found your species in the wild otherwise your guess would be as good as anyone elses. yours could easily be a mix of both highland and lowland BUT i've heard the higher the altitude the darker color they are THIS is the difference there are no special markings for highland and lowland in fact its the same spider just caught at different altitudes in the wilderness
