EXIF data
If you have the original file and the camera records EXIF data (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exif), the date should be in there. In MacOS, Preview will read these data using the "Inspector" and I'm sure there are simple PC apps that will do the same.

Would a dorsal view still help get this to species?

 
I was moving a bunch of stuff to higher classifications
Now that I have had a chance to look closer, I can easily see the diagnostic spines on the middle tibiae for R. sayi

you can get that easily by propping up the specimen between 2 toothpicks laying flat on a surface – among many other ways
