B. Albiceps or not?

The seller told me that it's a B. Albicep and the reason why the caraphase is black is because it's on pre-molt. So yesterday it molted already but still it has a black caraphase. Any thoughts about it? I can't find any info if it's normal for it to have a black caraphase at it's juvy stage.

Sorry. It is not a Brachypelma. Not sure of the genus. More experienced keepers can probably identify.

Albiceps will have a light carapace from a small size. That looks more like an Lp. (Lasiodora Parahybana) 54956D5A-E528-41A5-B461-C42F613DEB80.jpeg
The ones we have are between 1-3 inches but do have the light carapace
