While checking out a Melibe reference I came across this reference to a large population of Notarchus indicus at Eilat, Red Sea. Schuhmacher (1973) describes in some detail the characteristic 'tumbling' behaviour I described in my comments on Jochen Scholtyssek's photos [#2633, #2658]. This paper complements Martin's study of swimming of Notarchus punctatus in the Mediterranean.
