Perhaps you could move this to the 'invertebrates' category. You can do this by selecting the 'edit' tab above the observation title and selecting 'invertebrates' from the 'group' drop-down. Your observation will then be more likely to be seen by the experts who may be able to provide a more precise ID than mine :)
