Concerning message #19690:

Dear Bill,

The type of animal in Brian's and Oren's messages is commonly seen here in Eilat. You can see photos of 16 different individuals at and they all have brown speckling on the mantle and broken or nearly broken yellow lines inside the red margin. Even tiny juveniles. But the red margin is always solid (unlike C. alius ) and there is no outer white margin (unlike C. preciosa ). We always just assumed that it was C. verrieri.

best regards

Thanks Binyamin,
It certainly seems to be a consistent pattern - and consistently different, as you mention, from other similarly coloured species. We should add C. trimarginata and C. sinensis to the list as well. It looks like this is another of the many puzzles still to be sorted out

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
