Default Circuit Name and explication

Hi. Can someone explain to me this FET circuit configuration? I guest it is a form of current source, does it have a name? I think Q1 is selected for the needed current. Q1 can be 2SK170 and Q2 can be 2SK246 for example.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Q1 / R3 sets the current...remains at a fairly constant Vds

Q3 dissipates the power...may vary significantly (depends on rest of circuit)

More stable set point

IMHO

Much of the context is missing, but it sure looks like a cascode to me.

Yes, too much missing really...I thought it was a current source but it does not have to be that.

Here more background to judge the function of the circuit.

Yes, cascode.

Current stability and reduction of frequency limitations due to Miller Effect.
