That looks much better. I didn't look very closely this morning.

Not Peppered
It is a male Pelegrina, but I would say it is probably more likely to be P. proterva. The white areas behind the anterior median eyes extends toward the posterior like a bull's horns in P. galathea (see below) which is not what I see on your pictures.


 
Thanks!
Thanks ... that's what I originally thought, then had some doubts.
