I should have said..

no black line *immediately* under ocellus.

The problem being the dark line around the antenna insertion, though that is too long and curved to be mistaken for the short dark line of p.brevistylys.

At least once you've seen one!

would be good...

....to see the complete item and should be in the invertebrates section. If you edit and move - more people will see your posting :)

I have agreed this ID because what you have observed and reported fits the description well. I confess I find it hard to see the features, but you obviously had the advantage of seeing it for real.
