tricky

Can't quite see the abdomen clearly enough for comfort, but it doesn't look contrasty enough for hypnorum. I've gone for pascuorum, but I'm not entirely confident.

Thanks for you help, I was distracted by the amount of black hairs on the abdomen but I appreciate there is no distinctive white tip
