Thanks for reading! I post these for a lot of reasons (personal convenience, to help fill the web with more reference images, to link back to for explaining identifications) but I started assuming they weren't really being read and I got real lazy with the text on this one. Next time I make a post I'll make it a bit more verbose! I might even edit this one with more morphological analysis if I have the time.
