So why'd you name it Scooter
instead of something like Mamba?

I agree, should be W. crispulus.

Looks like Wamba to us too

I think you've found ...
Wamba crispulus too. Nice one!

Makes me
Wonder about the much desired Wamba. I hope you still have it!

 
Nope ...
I would not have even seen, if he hadn't been moving all around the sheet. I normally don't spend time photographing spiderlings, but he presented a challenge. The pattern seemed distinctive for so small a spirder, I decided to post. I have another slightly different view, if that helps. Scooter is probably around somewhere, if I could only find him.
