These species has a very characteristic colour pattern, orange body with a series of large white patches on the dorsum. It has prviously been recorded only from Japan but Bernard Picton's records here from Hong Kong, and my record from eastern Australia suggest it either has a much wider natural distribution or is being spread perhaps by shipping.
