I am guessing that those very round dots up the arm put it in the Adopus family. I am going with Adopus #5 because of the stripes and dots pattern on the arm, the webbing (but you can't really see the webbing at the arm end where it is more distinctive), the arms look thicker than aculeatus as compared to the mantle and I know you have a pair but it still looks like Norman's abaculus for the same reasons.
One of the things I want to do if there is time in October is to go over the markings of the commons we keep and then show photos where one can easily look like another
