What is this species of bamboo?

Can someone please tell me what species this bamboo is?
TY.
PS: Can it take full sun, or is this shaded by larger trees around it? It looks pretty tall. I would be planting it in very
strong, all day sun.

It strongly resembles Phyllostachys nigra 'Henon'. Very nice.
