Melanostoma

ID is for the second and third pictures, which show a male (eyes touching) Melanostoma scalare. The first picture is a female (eyes separated), and harder to put to species, though could be the same.

Re: Melanostoma

Many thanks indeed for identifying this Ian. I've deleted the photo of the female and will repost it as a Melanostoma sp.
