Here are some shots of Mexichromis multituberculata from Bali, Indonesia in Oct 2001.
• The pair [upper right] were found in 10m and have different mantle colourations. Lengths 30mm.
• The trio [lower left] were found together at around 20m, one minding an eggmass and the further animal in the process of laying. They were all the same colour. Lengths from 20-30mm.
• The solo animal [lower right] was found at 10m and was about 30mm long.

I think we are only on step away from demonstrating that Mexichromis multituberculata can have either blue or orange spots around the mantle edge. And if we include Mike Miller's earlier photos, we can include a wine-red colour in the variation as well.
What would be nice is a photo of a blue-spotted form mating with an orange-spotted animal. I am just about to go off for a week's fieldwork but when I return I think I will either combine these animals with the M. multituberculata Page or at least make a strong suggestion on that page that they are probably all the same species.
