Two spiders for ID

Both taken in the Manu Jungle in Peru. First images I believe are Phoneutria , swayed towrds sp. nigriventer. The second appears to be a Ctenidae member. Any help appreciated

      Have you thought about a species of Centroctenus for the first one, or Ctenus?

    Not always that simple from images where there can be several similar species - I agree with jaguarondi, I would put both down as Ctenidae, 2 and 3 looking like a Phoneutria species, Phoneutria nigriventeror a close-ish species. This is a tricky group and you really need to see the male and female bits to distinguish between species.
