Beveled margin

I think this margin is beveled. Unfortunately, few of the other photos of T. badiceps on MO have the same feature – either because they were in poor condition or are old. And I gather that young ones lack this feature. From a visual standpoint alone (primarily coloring and profile), I vote for T. badiceps over T. rubrobrunneus.
