Thanks, Reza, for the confidance, but, sorry, no chance to get closer without the native specimen and looking very closer into the literature and trusted speimens from Natural History Museum. There are only in Peru at least 5 or 6 different species. I have a paper, but would need hours for getting through the spanish description and unfortunately there are not very detailled description and no color photographs to compare.

I would wait for others to help with the ID, there are some awesome people here that can be of great assistance, Bayucca especially would be able to tell you more I am sure !

Thanks Reza! I do see a difference in the amount of orange in the upper abdomen between my photo and the one in the link you shared. Would this be an issue?

Beautiful. It kind of looks like this one in the link but that's from Costa Rica http://quaoarpowerzoo.blogspot.com/2012/...
