Author's notes

Noted the different patterning to another aegeus so perhaps this is a male?

Yes Ross, it is indeed a male. Nice shots!
I've added your photo to the species ID page - the males really are quite different to the females

This male didn’t seem to react much to me being close. It gave me a few chances to take close shots.
