One or t'other

Can't just quite decide between H. pendulus or H.hybridus. There seems to be too much dark on the hind tibia for the former and both have the midline black stripe on the face.

I'm sure someone with greater knowledge will clear it up! I'm still climbing up the learning curve and occasionally slipping back down again!

Well you're much further up the learning curve than I am, so many thanks for your help - much appreciated
