Does anyone know the lewis structure and geometric shape for SeF3+?

The shape is trigonal pyramidal and the lewis structure is
F — Se — F
'''''''''''. .

For SeF3+, I believe the molecular geometry is trigonal pyramid, AX3E. The central atom is Se, each F is single bonded to Se, then Se would have a lone pair as well. You can calculate the formal charge of each atom to check if this is correct. Hope this helps.
