Thanks for this. It's always good to get another piece to fit in the puzzle. The animal in this photo could have been the one used in the painting of Tritonia rubra in Ruppell & Leuckart (1831), so I have no doubts in identifying it as Marionia rubra. One feature characterising this species are the many bushy gills down each side of the body
