Moved tentatively; very nice!
no species of this genus recorded in YT yet; please tell me you saved the specimen

Moved from ID Request.

Sorry, no specimen
As a birder I'm not used to collecting. As a complete novice with other life forms I have no idea which ones are worth collecting. It is very exciting to have this kind of dumb luck discoveries, though!!
