'Risbecia apolegma' from Malyasia

From: Kheong Sann Chan

Dear Bill,
.. and here are 3 more photos of another H. bullocki nearby to where I photographed the others, but I can't figure out what he is doing. are those eggs that he is on, or is he eating some sponge?

Tenggol Island off the coast of east Malaysia on 24 May 2002. Depth was 13m.

Kheong.

Thanks Kheong,
This 'species' or 'colour form' has recently been named Risbecia apolegma. I have recently posted a photo of this 'colour form' mating with a typical H. bullocki so I am at a loss to know just what to think. I am surprised to have had no comment about this photo as to me it suggests they are the same species.

Thanks for this great series of photos of H. bullocki and its 'relatives'.
Cheers,
Bill Rudman
