Hi Max, Kim - I believe that the heart-shaped dark mark on A2 and the general markings on the terga of other abdominal segments identify this as Austrolestes psyche. A female, I think, although not possible to be sure without a view underneath A2 ... could be a young male, not yet turned blue.

Hi KerriLee, Yeah it was the colour that threw us. Nothing in the whole book was that colour, but if it is female or immature that would explain it I guess.
