Hi Ian

It is borderline - on the female end - the shape of the head seems broad - but that may be just the photo - did you get a picture of the tail?

I wonder what Rob or Tony thinks?

Hi all,

that's a tough one Jon, wouldn't like to hazard a guess as its bang in the middle - weird though.

Here's one of my 06 neos (six found so far, four males 2 females; using Tony's indices/guide).

This one was black from a about a a third length down from the head all the way to the tail. S -V length, just 138 mm. Tail 30mm. No bigger than a hat pin!!!

Found this one under a tin yesterday - is it one of this years crop of youngsters?  Sorry about poor quality - I was using a camera phone.


Cheers, Mark

Mark,

it could be but like you say, its hard to tell from the photo. How long would you say it was?

If it was pushing 200mm instead of 150mm approx, it might well be a last years, even so, its good to see you've got them breeding on your patch eh!

Cheers

Rob
