Yes, SK, reticulated type, agree!

A typical example of what may happens in pathology: sometimes the diagnostically easiest lesion become the most difficult one....!

One may call it acanthotic type rather than reticulated. Reticulum= net and reticulated SK should show a network of thin strands of keratinocytes.
