Wildlife Ranger's picture

Green SB Winter Colouration - not Troilurus luridus

The overall specimen looks teneral occurring after a recent moult but is a white balance effect

They are 4 potential candidates see banded Corium The Forest - does not appear to have the antennal pattern and shoulders . The Sloe is not defined enough and in any case has banded antennas

The Green SB it is - a definite possibility now looking at Februarys Date !! but the White balance makes it look like a recent moult
