From the angle, it looks like a semi to me.
According to a Google search, the average SQHB is 6.5-6.75 inches wide so this is probably a wider SQHB.
I think you measured it right, I think you're supposed to do it from concho to concho like you did...

Here's the link I was going off of for most of that^^:

Honestly-I try not to "label" them. If I am buying-I ask for pics of the seller measuring, since everyone measures differently anyway and I do not necessarily trust how they measure it. I know how my current saddle fits, and therefore have a really good idea of what I am looking for. If I am selling-I make sure to provide the pics necessary for people to decide for themselves. There just seems to be a LOT of ambiguity, and I would rather et folks make their own judgement.....IMO. The angle is the real "unknown" with fitting, from my experience.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
