This specimen was collected in a riffle zone. There's a marking on the head that I think resembles an angry cat wearing a small hat. There's two small pale slits on the left and right that look like eyes, a pale curve in the center that looks like a frown, and three dark protrusions that look like ears on the left and right and a hat in the center. It seems pretty distinctive and matches that of some images found on the page for this species, but I'm not entirely sure if this species is what I think it is.
