Pika ID from Sichuan (1 Viewer)

Hi all, photographed this pika in Yading National Park, Sichuan. It was foraging along a grassy slope near some forests, at above 3000m elevation. Was searching online and several possible species popped up - Moupin Pika, Gansu Pika and Thomas's Pika. Identification seems to require morphological measurements, was wondering if the range of the species can help in ID? Would appreciate any help in identifying this pika!

Edit: Based on range, it seems like Moupin Pika is the most likely candidate, although the range for Gansu Pika is pretty near as well. Still happy to hear what others have to say!
