I agree with you there. I have added the species name as a tag so it can be found. With the notes and comments that should work

Just throwing an idea before I had to go out. Your lateral shot really rang a bell for me though. Those little black dashes towards the outer margin looked familiar and now that I compare it to Donald Hobern's version I think it's right - even though yours is lacking other markings.

are you telling me you believe it is D lineata?

I did, The markings seem to be variable if Google images is anything to go by. One variation looks like this. Very difficult to pick when they all seem to mimic a similar twig, lol
