look at end of rostrum

.. if 2 equal teeth points to serratus, squilla less curvature and only one sharp tooth (usually is as well when you put your finger on it). Serratus has 6-8 teeth on the upper side of the rostrum back from the tip. Adspersus has teeth all the way along ending with 2 equal small teeth.

This is serratus teeth set back from the terminal point of the rostrum and this would have had 2 teeth at terminal point if one hadn't been broken off.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Gramandy, It certainly

Thanks Gramandy,

It certainly does help. Yeah I noticed the tiny fork at the tip of the rostrum and how the 2 projections werent equal. Didnt pic up on it being broken, must go back and check that out.

Cheers,

Cathal.
