That habit of semi-fanning its tail (like in first pic) and waving it around as it is poorly fixed (2nd pic) refers also Upcher's.
You might like to check out the following page - I have toned down the sun on AJ's pictures and have these images together with shots of both Upchers and Olivaceous for comparison - see what you think
