Epitheca
if you still have the exuvia take off the palps and count the hairs on the curved edge. E. princeps has 4.

see here:

 
Epitheca princeps
The 4 setae on the palps don't make it E. princeps, but the field of setae on the prementum does.

 
Thanks
Beautiful macros, I was studying these very pictures before uploading mine, didn't understand it was the setae that were important.

The palp look like it has four nubs where there were hairs, I can see them with a loupe but don't think my camera can manage an image. There are three other specimens, I'll examine those as well.
