Thank you for your reply to my last message.
Two juveniles of 'Miamira-group' were found at Sunabe in Okinawa, Japan. There are some rocks in sand, 10m away from reef edge, they were on rocks there. One of them is a color variation of 'Ceratosoma sinuata', but I don't know the other. Could you identify it for me?
UPPER PHOTO: ('sinuata') 21 December 1999, depth: 20m, length: 9mm
LOWER PHOTOS: (unknown) 25 December 1999, depth: 20m, length: 6mm(two images)
Green type 'sinuata'(22mm) and Ceratosoma miamirana (30mm) were also found at the same point(within a 2-meter radius).

Note added 30 April 2007: Until now on the Forum C. sinuata and C. flavicostata have been considered forms of one species. See message #19854 where they and C. magnifica are considered separate species.
These are beautiful animals. I agree that the top one looks like a purple colour form of the green 'sinuata' but the lower photos look a bit different, though they do look a bit like 'magnifica' in shape.
At this stage I guess its a question of building up more information. It would be interesting to see if you find large specimens of these purple colour forms or whether they change into less colourful adults.
I would be interested in photos of the larger species you also saw. They would be an interesting comparison.
