According to the WSC the two are synonymous there needs to be more DNA work to prove they are different or divergent species. So for now it P. subfusca HL and LL
Two comparison pics I saved from another post

so the best ID is the abdomen markings/pattern and something I had seen before that the darker section in the middle of the pattern appears more 'washed out' in the HL (Subfusca)

Actually it's easy you just need to translate the name subfusca - sub (below) / fuscus (dark) and you have the answer....
