Dear Bill,

Here are some photos of Ceratosoma miamirana.

The top animal, 14 cm long alive, was photographed in the Dekel Beack, Eilat, Israel (Red Sea), at about 20m depth, on the 21 Feb 2005 (By Sheikh Sliman of the Tapuz Z'lila tribe).

A simular animal [lower photo ] was photographed by Shai Beisky in Jan, 2004, at the same location.

Dear Matan,
Thanks for these records. I am surprised that both animals are so large. The largest I have seen are about 7 cm long.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
