Thanks, Martin. From memory,

Thanks, Martin. From memory, am I correct in saying that there are basically the two species: C. vicina & C. vomitoria? If that's the case, is there a suite of features I should be looking for that can easily separate one from the other in a tube with a lens handy? (Hope you don't mind me giving you more work! :-) )
