OK, thanks.

That's good enough for me.

Sorry, I should add more

Sorry, I should add more detail. The bulge is hard to make out when the tail is curled. The overall pattern is more typical of a male.

I assumed...

.... that was what you meant. I hope you didn't think i was being sarcastic - I wouldn't do that. I am just aware that you have considerable experience (and therefore your opinion is good enough for me).

Don't worry!

I didn't think you were. I thought that my original comment could be more useful with some more information.

Phew!

When I read my own comment back, I WAS worried that it might have been taken that way! Anyway, useful to know that the 'bulge' is not always apparent and that patterning should be considered as well.
