Juvenile of Tambja sagamiana?

January 21, 2003
From: Tomoki Ueda

Hello Bill,
It's a photograph taken in Secret Bay [Gilimanuk Bay], Bali, Indonesia. The length is 8mm-10mm and the depth is 3m. My friend said this species is a juv. of Tambja sagamiana. Is it really?? I think it's a another one. But I can not find out the name of this. Please let me know the name of this species.
Thanks,
Tomoki Ueda

Dear Tomoki,
Its a bit hard to identify juveniles, and until we know more about colour variation in different species, we can never be sure. I very much doubt that this could ever convert inot the adult colour form of T. sagamiana. It is possibly the animal I have on the Forum as Tambja cf. verconis, or it could even be a Tambja morosa. If you look at Mary-Jane Adams's message, she has a photo with very similar blue and green markings.
Sorry I can't be more definite,
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
