Aircraft ID Help

Does anyone recognize this aircraft type? Taken in 1919, presumably in Czechoslovakia.

Looks like a Spad to me. The triangular tail assembly is a pretty good clue. However, I've been wrong before on aircraft ID. Good luck. Regards.

My roommate is an aircraft i.d. genius, and his best guess is a Aviatik of some sort. He's not positive, but is usually right.

It is not a Spad though.

The aircraft in question is most definitely an Aviatik B.I or II.
