If so, it leaves only P. freycinetii and P. faveolata. There are a few parts that are shallowly faveolate, but it doesn’t really seem conspicuous or “strongly” faveolate to me (compare to photos of species that really are strongly faveolate). I posted something very similar to this from near Ushuaia (observation 20428)… but of course it could be wrong, too!
