Another Ceratosoma miamirana from Indonesia

May 1, 2007
From: Jim Anderson

Hello again Bill,
Following a recent trip to Raja Ampat, Indonesia I am sending on some images that I trust will be of interest.

I think this one may be one of the colour forms of Ceratosoma sinuata.

Locality: Manta Point, Airborei, 15 m, Raja Ampat, Indonesia, Dampier Strait, 8 march 07, bombed out reef. Length: 100 mm. Photographer: Jim Anderson.

Dear Jim,
Although green, this is Ceratosoma miamirana rather than C. sinuata. The species is very variable in colour and often you have to see it very close up to be aware of the spectacular nature of its colour pattern. The bright blue 'eye spots' and the brownish tinge around the mantle edge are two fairly constant characters. The most distinctive feature, which is seldom seem, is the bright green network pattern on the underside of the mantle.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
