Thanks, that helps a lot. Yes it did have a bright yellow underbelly.

Two-lined, not tow-lined :P

I would suggest tow-lined. Red backs, when they don't have a red back, are more black than the yellow-brown you have here. Did you get a look at the underbelly? If it was a two lined it should have been bright yellow.
