How did you get the ID to species, are you sure of it or just a best guess? Is he penultimate?

Penultimate is one molt away from maturity. 🙂

I asked because I can tell it’s a male but when I googled X. cristatus he didn’t look like the mature males I’m seeing, but that might be because he still has one molt to go.
