Ann,
The PM on Datana integerrima does not have a dip in it like your specimen. I'm thinking this is a D. perspicua because of the dip in the PM and small reniform on the AM near the costa with small orbicular above it.

Interesting, I think I went by location on this one. They all look SO much alike. Whatever they are, I have a LOT of them. Mine don't seem to have spots, but neither does the MPG example. Another interesting mystery!
