Laughing…. I thought ‘Just sayin’ was East Coast. I was writing stuff, then paused. Okay, there is a blade of grass in the frame for some scale reference, so the width on that makes me think less than 15cm. BTB Kuo has parameters even less 7-10mm so I’ll take the advantage you gave. And the striations… I think you know where they might be at… Vase shaped… on a twig..

it’s almost certainly striatus, but if these are taller than 1.5cm, they exceed the size parameters for C. striatus outlined in the audubon guide. all i’m sayin…
