This spider was found in the spruce forest near the lake in the foliage of alder, June, 14, Eastern Karelia. Is my idntification correct?

Thanks! I missed this species accidently, as for it wasn't represented in the keys. Anyway even now I find these species very similar. So, what's the main difference I should look at? Is it lateral margins of epigyne which are convex in W. unicornis and concave in W. lepida?
