To Olivier and Charles

Many thanks for your ID information. This was a "first time" observed specimen for me. The examples that you both included in your replies are incredible!!. I am glad that you were at least able to recognize the beast from my humble efforts. Thanks to you both for your willingness to share your knowledge.

All the best

John
