Hi, see above image for ID.

Here’s one that looks immature to compare to, yours might be immature . The color is much lighter on the one in the following link because it likely recently molted. It is mostly the Christmas tree shaped pattern on the abdomen that I am basing this ID on. I’m not aware of any other species in the area that look like this and have that exact mark.
