how sure you are about the ID?
who examined the specimen?

I've corrected my error...
thank you for bringing this post to my attention. I had intended to file this under the genus level only, though based on the other photos of this specimen I was reasonably sure of the ID. As always I welcome input and instruction.

now that sounds reasonable -- thanks!
