yes, Zenodosus sanguineus
(I'd recommend using a small paint brush to dust off specimens prior to photographing.)

I just commented on one of my other images seeing them on a larger screen really shows the dirt and dust, some of these are a few years old already and im worried about breakage

I was getting ready to move your photo to the guide, when I caught your comment "some of these are a few years old already." That means the date posted is incorrect. Are the dates on your other specimens correct? Do you know the date this specimen was collected? Thanks

No no all the dates are correct, the comment was in regard
To a few other images I uploaded to the I'd request at the same time as this cleride. This one is from 2012 and all data is correct

I wish others were as expedient. Most won't respond to date request at all :(
