Yes (in males) which are not as difficult (on other grounds) to distinguish as 
are females. As in I think there are easier ways to pick the males. There is a 
huge number of websites about them. I think it was Graeme Chapman who first 
described this specific feature. I suggest look up his website (rather than us 
retype all the information).

When determining Leaden or Satin I seem to recall that the whether the
bib angles at the sides were upswept or downswept was an indicator.

Can anyone help me with this, please.
