I think the photo is of Aglaja ocelligera. What do you think?

It certainly has close similarities to Aglaja ocelligera in shape and colour but it lacks the white transverse streaks on either side of the head which are usually present in Nth American animals. I have just posted a photo of an animal from Friday Harbour, Washington, USA [see message #16649] and like the photo we already have on the Forum from California, both these animals have the white streaks. Some animals also have a white band around the posterior end of the body as well.
It will be interesting to hear the views of Nth American colleagues who are familar with Aglaja ocelligera
