Young Tarantula?

Yumbo, Colombia

This one is only about 2.5 cm long. I wonder if it very young or a very small species.

My best guess is that it is a juvenile; there are at least three genera with species that have a similar color pattern on their legs, but none appear to be a good match for your specimen.

Thank you Flap. There do seem to be various species hereabouts.
