I think this might be a Linnaemya sp. Can anyone confirm this?

The mouth edge isn't projecting enough for Linnaemya ... but it could be Phorocera assimilis (etc). A specimen would be needed to confirm it I think Smile

Doh! Erikas posted while I was writing Grin Nice to know that we agree though Wink
