As you know, I have been studying this species and discovered that there are in fact two distinct species. Patrick's photo is of a true Calma glaucoides, which most probably has been feeding on the eggs of the fish Lepadogaster sp. That whitish-blue coloration is typical of a mature adult and it never appears in the, at present, unnamed species. Beware that in both species the gonad is visible through the skin. My review of the genus is about to come out in Journal of Molluscan Studies. I already have the complete reference

I am planning to give the Forum a report in a few weeks, after the paper is published.
