thanks Argy, and good luck with the spotting. If you cross the road and go up the nature trail in UFTG Park, you just might spot one!
The name's a bit of a mouthful!

These are impressive even though maybe old and dry. I haven't seen anything like it. I think pic2 is the dramatic one with those huge gills.
