    In my opinion I think it's colors are to bright for a ornata.. ornata appear a bit darker shades when compared to regalis or fasciata.. as others have stated the white "band" is missing but what makes me think its really a fasciata is I noticed it's legs have the long style hair.. most fasciatas I have seen have a fairly good amount of long hairs protruding from the legs when compared to regalis who does have the leg hairs but by my eye sight the hairs are shorter compared to the fasciata.. but don't buy in 100 percent I have been wrong before

    What really confuses me is the blueish purple color on the legs though.

    How likely is it that it might be a hybrid

    Am no expert but ... not ornata. Markings are wrong for an ornata.
    Based on carapace marking, leg markings (incl. color), etc., it looks closer to a fasciata than anything else.
    Of course, my not being an expert, I cannot say that "fasciata" is 100% accurate.
