Agree it's odd.

I have stared at these photographs more than once and I agree that it doesn't seem typical for A. xanthochlora, but I have no alternative to offer. Despite these being apomicts, there is evidently a degree of genetic variation in the species and so xanthochlora does seem most likely. If this was in my own vice-county I would want to get it checked out.

A big thank you for your time and thoughts Alan. I hope to revisit soon and take a closer look, but will probably be left none the wiser.
