Identification of Orthoceratium specimen collected by A. Stubbs

Dear colleagues,

I am finishing a revision of Orthoceratium and came across the following specimen record in an unpublished manuscript by late C.E. Dyte:

(GR-06) - GREECE: Ionian Islands, Corfu, Dassia, 4.v.1972, leg. A.E. Stubbs [Dyte (unpubl. data)

I wonder if this specimen still exists and if so, who could help me with checking its sexe and the presence of one black bristle at the basal 1/3 of the fore tibia. This is majorly important to come to a correct ID.

Thanks in advance.

I think Dyte's collection ended up at the London NHM. Try Erica McAlister at the museum.
