    1 is taken without a flash & appeared greyer & darker.
    Note diffusion of orange into space 3 & 4 is common in R. dieneces.

    Another species to look out for is R. scintilla.
    This closely resembles R. manea but is grey tinged on the underside.

    It is possible some of the grey R. manea is R. scintilla.
