The paper is paywalled, but I would assume it is L. fuelleborni as males at the locations stated are similar.

It would interesting to know if both this new species and L. fuelleborni are found sympatrically at the location of this new species.

Indeed. If this "species" would co-exist with (another) L. fuelleborni variant, it could be a good indication. But I don't think it would be "compelling evidence", aren't there certain species where different varieties of the same species co-exist? Pretty sure I saw some mentioned in Ad Konings' Malawi-bible, but I could be wrong.
