I thought that Gill but I put it down to shaddow, could be wrong though. If it turns out to be a new sub-species should we call it Lepus europaeus Sinclairous?

Sub-species name sounds a bit too like 'hilarious'!
Actually I only recently learned that species named after a man end in 'i' or 'ii' whereas those named after a woman end in 'ae', so it would be sinclairae if you please:-)
I didn't know that! I've checked a few obvious ones and you appear to be right; so sinclairae it is!
