Hi Alan, I have happened on some pictures that look similar and I think you are correct. I'm pleased it is now identified although it would have been nice to have made a new discovery! Do you have a link to your flickr account as the one on your profile takes me into the "my groups" section. It would be nice to see some more of your photos...

Hello Robin. I'm not certain. I suspect Lyssomanes is correct but several species live in Mexico and I don't know how to tell them apart from a photo, or even if you can.

Thank you Alan Thornhill, I am looking through pictures of this and most of them seem to have spots or stripes down the abdomen which this one didn't. It was green all over. They also seem to be more slender. How certain are you? Maybe I'm just wishful thinking but I will leave it open a bit longer!
