Now I'm really confused! Looking closely at the images, what I thought were hairs on the notopleuron are indistinguishable from the jpeg artefacts. But I see D. linearis can have hairs there. Ackland refers to long costal spines before the break. Also, though we can't really see what's happening at st 3, I would have guessed that the longest hairs were at the distal end.
I suspect that whatever we call it we would change our minds when we got the specimen :D
I wrote this before I saw your last post. It's all good exercise!
