Thanks, all

Well, I'm certainly convinced. Looks like getting to species from the key with this photo is rather tricky (i.e. practically impossible), but genus is a good start. Much appreciated.

Yep, got that

Aye, I have, thanks. Unfortunately the photo doesn't seem to show the details clearly enough for any sort of confidence... I'll know next time. :o)
