maybe vagans
Thank you for pointing this out. Changed to female. Looking at the Discovery Guide it does appear to be vagans. I see far more of them in the last two weeks, then all of the other species together. It would be nice to get a confirmation. I found the tongue very long.

 
The only other thing it could
The only other thing it could be is sandersoni, and the head looks too long to be sandersoni. I'm reasonably confident it's vagans.

It looks like vagans.
