    Here's another picture, not as focused but shows the color more accurately

    Hi,

    It looks nothing like the reference images of faecal traces.

    Once you can move past the “it’s a mark on the sheet” and look at the detail of the mark it’s obviously the wrong colour. It’s about getting beyond the superficial level of data.

    Hope that helps.
