ID for a Tarantula? - Aphonopelma eutylenum - male

ID for a Tarantula? - Aphonopelma eutylenum - Male
Claremont, Los Angeles County, California, USA
August 25, 2011
As I was driving out of the Claremont Colleges' Robert J. Bernard Biological Field Station at about 7:00 p.m., I spotted this tarantula crossing the dirt and gravel road right in front of my car. After it crossed, it turned around and went back the other way. I gather from BugGuide posts that all (or nearly all) California tarantulas are Aphonopelma sp., and that identification to species is nearly impossible. Can someone confirm the genus? Whatever it is, it will be a new addition for our field station invert list!
