Recently molted but unsure.

That is NOT an auratum. They would look similar to hamorii (knees) as slings but darker in color. My guess is that would be a Brachypelma boehmi.

Reminds me of the G. rosea we bought as a sling that turned into this after her last molt

When you say an inch, do you mean the body span is an inch or the diagonal leg span? I have a B. boehmi that is about an inch and isn't showing any coloration as of yet. Tarantula pictured looks a bit bigger than an inch is the only reason I ask....

We don’t have a b boehmei af yet so doubles our chances I guess :). Now to source another b auratum :)
you missed out pal. I sold one last week. About 8cm DLS. Sorry. Strangely enough, he wanted and bought an 'auratum' but his was also a boheimi so I took that as a part trade. Maybe you both got from the same seller!?
