I IDd this in the 1990s. It does not have a mauve tuft. It needs revisiting.

I checked this with David Jones. He said -
Thelys are difficult from photos but this certainly looks like T. malvina to me. The horizontal column hood with a small tubular opening is right. The hair tufts are not always pink-mauve, very occasionally they are white. Be better if it did have mauve-pink tufts.
