yes it is
However, I think that H. capito and H. gracilipes blend in that part of the world (more obvious as you go east from there), and your's does show a bit more of the dark band than most H. gracilipes further west do. (but it's bold on typical H. capito). Also, yours shows a bit of green. I've chuckled that the literature says H. capito is "never" green, yet I've found green ones. This is a teaser that implies H. gracilipes may come in green too.
