Genitalia

Not very clear in the picture...I would leave it at genus level (but Chris' eyes may well be better than mine...most people's are!).

Eyes

Hi Ian, I blew it up on a big monitor and they appear long and curved, converging at both ends, so I went for the species ID. I agree it's not that clear but I think I can make out enough. Regards Chris.

Agree

Yes, I just blew it up and I think you are right, Chris.
