latimana & ovata

Yes - good point, there are latimana with this pattern, though less commonly so - latimana also has fewer black marks (they are present here at the edge of the red stripe but are a little out of focus) and the rear edge of the epigyne (not visible here) differs in shape - this one is ovata,
