Hi Martin, Yes I see that

Hi Martin,

Yes I see that hunched neck feature on the Engrailed. Will take a longer look later but you are probably correct.

Ironically, this would be the first Engrailed larva I have seen, I think. Before I discovered they were Scalloped Hazels, I thought I was seeing many Engraild larva and I would have visited the Engrailed larva pics many times a few years ago. Thanks,

Cathal.
