Can you give the size of the specimen(s)? This is quite important in limiting which species this could be. It looks like it might be P. redheadii, P. olivacea (but I don’t see much olive), or another species that I glanced at in Dr. Norvell’s new book, but didn’t purchase. Nonetheless, I should be able to present the photos to Dr. Norvell at the OMS Survivor’s Banquet in January and get a definitive opinion. There are apparently several new species in Norvell’s newest work – species which are currently unknown to me.
