macropus would probably have bright white spots over its skin is normally found near the Med Sea.

cyanea could be an option and there are indo-pacific sub species of vulgaris.. otherwise I am not sure...

Is there evidence of eye marks on the webbing? Like a bimac but no blue.. just a black spot???

I never thought sparticus was that small, its good though as he would probably have quite some time more. Other possibilities include, pallidus, membranaceus and tetricus.
