Nettle Tap

I have looked at all 3 species and it still looks like a Nettle Tap to me though. Both the species you mention do not have the dusting near the head and the jagged cross band. Hopefully an expert will pick it up.

Nettle-tap

I am certainly less familiar with Nettle-tap's variability than you, so I'll agree with you.
