Temognatha mitchelli variety?

I don't know this one, Stuart. Owen's suggestion is a possibility. You might pass it by Allen Sundholm. Kim.

OK, thanks Kim and you may be right Owen!? Allen S is not certain though suggests mitchelli or karratae. Having perused the minimal reference images on the net I am not convinced though definitely Temognatha. One for the (ice) basket!
