for the ID, Robin.

Ammo*donus fos*sor with worn vestiture.

Do you think I should move it there?

I was hoping someone more expert than me
would comment. I'd email Kojun Kanda but he doesn't give an email address on his personal page. The only way we have to reach him is replying on a page where he's already posted an image or comment. The habitat does seem right for this species though, so if you'd like to move it, go ahead.
