    1. Thanks, Claire for the help with ID, looks like it, also seems like it is also small in size.

      1. My pleasure, if correct, a fairly recent discovery! Posted 2 years ago
        1. Yes, in 2015.
          It looks similar, to my untrained eyes! ha ha, and the size is roughly the same, I estimate the one I saw around 5 cm (could be a bit bigger) and in Wikipedia, its mentioned as around 6.34 cm.

          1. Well, I am convinced, what a find! I shall repromote, just to see if there are further comments. Posted 2 years ago
            1. Thanks again, Claire.
              Its always nicer to know the ID of the animal you take pic of and the added bonus if its a rare find or a newly discovered find :D
