As far as I know pascuorum always has at least a few black hairs on the abdomen, but sometimes there are *very* few of them. Can't see any black hairs on your excellent photo, but can't see all that much of the abdomen either, so I'm going to sit on the fence for this one.

The detail in this photo is amazing (especially if you click through to see the photo at original size), digital photography really can open up a whole new perspective on the smaller plants and animals, showing detail that you'd never be able to observe otherwise.
