Here are 3 shots of 2 specimens from the Philippines, Malapascua Island, divesite "Japanese Cargo Wreck". The smaller one has been spawning, stopped it (perhaps disturbed by me?) and crawled away together with the larger one.
Data: 54mm + 43mm
Date: 24.Feb. 2002

I suspect this is a species of Sakuraeolis, but I don't know of one with this colour pattern. The shape of the egg ribbon is not exclusive to Sakuraeolis, but at least one species, S. nungunoides has an identical egg ribbon.
