1) you are correct, I have mm in my notes, not cm -have changed it on the post

2) excellent point -I worked up a bunch of specimens that day and didn’t notate if any stains, etc. were used on these. I believe I just used water on this, which I prefer to do when taking measurements. I did a squash mount of the smallest specimen. A larger specimen might have longer hairs. I still have material remaining and might try a working up a larger one at some point.

1. i think you mean mm, not cm.

2. what was your mounting medium? any stains/reagents?

I am getting this sequenced, so am looking forward to the results. I know these can be difficult to put to species.
