    I concur ... brachystoma popped into my head as soon as I saw the pic (garter sense tingling).
    Keeping - 'Florida blue' sirtalis, concinnus, infernalis, parietalis, radix, marcianus and ocellatus.

    Don't forget then, Justin.... loads more photos before you let her go.
    We need to add her to the photo library too. Will you do that, or should I?
