Thanks so much, Chris.
The photo has two cream shaving brushes (tufts) and two Brown, should it not have four cream,sorry to question your id Chris but I think it is something very similar but don't know which or can you get variation in the colour
Thanks Douglas for clearing that up, I suspected it but not for sure.
Hi Sheila, we have both learned something and there's no problem in questioning my ID that what iSpot is all about.
Regards to you both, Chris.

Chirs is correct. This is Vapourer, early instar. The tufts will all become cream/yellow as it grows and moults.
I did not know this I thought they were all yellow straight away interesting to know and something learned too.I will now agree with confidence.
