    Do these have an ocular tubercle (in common with all other T's I guess) and no eyes? I'd love to see a close up of the carapace

    There is a vestigial remnant of an Occular tubercle but there are no eyes - it really is a weird thing to look at - see close up

    Cheers for the close up Martin, it's fascinating. The carapace just looks 'wrong' somehow

    If I remember correctly this species is very rare, am I correct in saying this?
    And I agree Phil it's a very fascinating creature.
