These comparison images shows us clearly at least one difference between EOW and Upchers: distance between tips of the three tertials about equal in EOW, whereas distance between central and inner tertials clearly longer than between central and outer ones in Upchers.

Regarding to this case, we can rule out Booted because this Hippo has rather long primary projection and 7 primary tips visible, which match well to Olivaceous and possibly also Upchers.
