Moved from Metellina. The man, Rod Crawford, says - The palps make it segmentata.

I think it looks like segmentata -- the conductor seems more compact here; in curtisi it seems to extend out a bit beyond the mass of the pedipalp. But it's not the best image for this, I'm afraid. Maybe double-check with "the Man"? :-)
