Ceratosoma palliolatum from Kerama Islands

April 19, 1999
From: Rie Nakano

Dear Bill,
Here is another of Mr Atsushi Ono's images from Kerama Island, near Okinawa which you offered to identify for us.

Mr.Ono thinks it is Noumea sp. but Mr.Cory Pittman this should be Ceratosoma palliolatum (The change was suggested by Scott Johnson.)

Dear Rie,
Yes, Scott Johnson is correct, this is Ceratosoma palliolatum Rudman, 1988.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
