Help with Mantis Shrimp ID

Good Afternoon, Last week I purchased this mantis shrimp labeled as a peacock mantis but I am having second thoughts about its ID.
Here are some photos, the detailing characteristics would be yellow antennal scales, and red knobs on its tail.
the clubs are white.

Is it a G. Chigara

The spots on its shell behind its eyes do look similar to the last picture on Dr. Roy's page for G. Chigara. Can you tell what color the meral spots are? Def not a peacock.

Also, now is a good time to determine its gender if you can see under the walking legs.
