Here is one for which I apologize for not submitting earlier . The award was a CCM and was granted at a show where Franco Pupulin was present and made preliminary determination . This was not submitted prior (as a first award ) because of the issue of synonymy to subspecies of Nidema boothii , a separate species and one previously awarded.

Upon consultation with the Registrar, I made the call to submit since the previous award to nothii did not mention subspecies. I have included the measurements from the Award Form that has the signature of Pupulin . Images and drawings from SOF for both ottonis and boothii . The photos of boothii have been marked with an orange star.
