    Sorry, I was so excited that I wrote "nicholsoni" in my identification, which should have read "centralis". I just started to move in bowerbird, so I do not know yet how to undo or correct identifications!

    Hi Linda! Lucky you!! Tremendous! I think this is Ctenocolletes indeed! My suggestion would be C. nicholsoni! Now find me a Stenotritus please! :)) Regards! Bernhard
