Thanks for the confirmation, Norm. I moved it to the correct page.

Looks a lot like...
...this one I found except for the color. If you look through the images I think you will find that some will be a closer match to the color of yours.

Hi Ron, Thanks for your reply.

Yes, The images in the guide are a dead ringer save for the color. Tom Murray's pale one is almost an exact replica. Interesting!! I wonder what the difference in the color means, if anything? I would really like to verify it before moving it to the correct page. It is not recorded as yet in PA. Would be nice to add it. I'm going to go with O. cincta on my site for now and hope someone corrects me if it is not the proper ID.

Thanks again, Ron. Good eye!
