I see you have few photos of Doto koenneckeri on the Forum. So, here are some colour forms of what I think are Doto koenneckeri. I distinguish this species according to the very long terminal ceratal tubercles.
Locality: 'La digue', Port-Leucate , 3m, France, Mediterranean, 16 May 2005. Length: 5 - 6 mm. Photographer: Marina Poddubetskaia Ossokine.

Thanks for some better photos of this species. It has enabled me to update the Fact Sheet. I see that Bernard Picton also considers the shape of the purple spots to be distinctive in this species - 'comma shaped' rather than circular. In the close-up alongside I can see what he means.
