SS-Sturmbannführer ID

A very exquisite pic from ebay. Anyone recognizes him? He wears a Nahkampfspange (i. Bronze?), Bandenkampfabzeichen in Silber plus EK and Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber. Many thanks.

Just a tentative ID based on some serendipitous browsing... might this SS-Stubaf. be the latter SS-Sta. Thomas Müller?

My suggestion is based upon what appears to be a fairly distinctive, although sometimes faint, scar to the left of his nose. The decorations throw me slightly. Was Thomas Müller awarded the Bandenkampfabzeichen and Nahkampfspange? Neither are listed in Mark Yergers' Waffen SS Commanders, but is the list of awards exhaustive?

Your comments are welcomed.

Sorry! I should have checked before sending my post. Doh!

Thomas Müller

SS-Stubaf. - Jan 24. 1940 (with seniority from October 31 1939)
SS-Ostubaf. - April 20. 1942
SS-Staf. - June 21. 1943.

EKII and EKI in 1940
Infantry Assault Badge (Grade ?)
Reichs Sport Badge (silver)

If the award of the Bandenkampfabzeichen wasn't instituted until the end of Jan. 44, then he can't be wearing it in a picture that would have to predate his Apr. 20 1942 promotion to SS-Ostubaf. can he?

Your thoughts welcomed. Many thanks.
