note again tertial pattern: lower 2 tt are juvenile and very worn, then there is a moult gap, then there's only one typical 2nd cycle tt with all dark center and narrow subterminal band followed by the odd "half and half" tt: inner web with half black center and no white tip, outer adult greyish with white tip! next tt has two isolated small black centers on each web surrounded by grey, and the uppermost, not fully grown one looks greyish.
