Hi, welcome to SpiderID. 🙂 Your spider is a Tigrosa helluo.

Yes, T. aspersa tends to have more striking coloration on the leg bands and carapace stripe. The females can be black with rich yellow accents (the males are straw colored), or at least a darker brown with a more contrasting yellow. T. helluo leans towards being more average brown or sometimes a drab nearly olive brown color with weak or no visible banding on the legs.
