Thanks KarenL!

Hi Roland, I've ticked the box that says "help me ID this spotting" and blanked the scientific name (removed "gecko") because by filling anything in Scientific name tricks the software into regarding the spotting as identified. With this blank, it is marked as not identified enabling the community to try & identify it for you. Thanks!
