Thanks V for id and setting me straight on this guy.I
usually ignore Uloma that I find all the time but fooled by
this one.

 
unhappy about my call; too dark & large & smooth for U.p.
looks rather like impressa, but, acc'g to my sources, the latter isn't known w. of GA [yet]; will ask Jim Dunford to check your nice series
