And good luck with that haha! Get a friend, and hope it goes under a log or something, then flip the log and grab

Darn. I was hoping that maybe this one could be ID'd. I will need to catch one one of these days!

It's not broadhead, so either P. inexpectatus or P. fasciatus. One day you will get one with 5 upper labials and it will be a broadhead, then we will finally be able to nail down a species! With these 4 upper labial ones though, you have to look under the tail.
