Is this a B. Smithi or B. Annitha?

    It looks to be pretty young still... Identification of juvies is difficult. Adults are fairly easy. From what I see I'd say B. Hamorri. I would wait till it matures more to positively I.D. it though.

    I was confused by the title. Annitha and smithi are the same spider, then there's hamorri, which is what this looks like, to me. Annitha is a junior synonym of smithi.
