Wow, that was quick! Much appreciated David, fantastic match. The top side of the beetle had had a much more smooth surface than the image you've shown....it was almost like someone had overturned a contact lens on its back..it had the same gelatin consistency as well.

Really appreciate it! If you're ever in KL, I'll buy you a beer!!!
