Probably a super delta but maybe a HM (180* - half circle spread)

He is a delta, a super delta comes close to the 180 degree spread of a halfmoon but not quite there. A delta is pretty much a halfmoon just not enough spread to get there.

It is somewhat confusing trying to tell the difference between delta/super delta. My new guy pictured below was labeled "delta"--and yet he looks soo much different than Rory. *Shrugs*

To determine delta, super delta, or HM, you'd have to flare him.. Delta is less than 160 spread. 160+ = super delta. 180 = HM. If they don't flare, they look similar.
