To complete the photos of Gastropteron chacmol on the Forum, here are some colour variations in this species. It is quite common near Anne DuPont's boat, in Exuma. All the specimens I saw there were found on the sand.

Thanks Marina & Anne,
Getting a record of colour variability is very useful. The side view I have included alonside is a nice link to Colin Redfern's photos [#11961]. If you look carefully you can see the individual pigment spots which match those in his photos.
