Dear Bill and others,
Here is a pic of Aegires flores, and an out-of-focus one of its presumed white upright egg mass. There were three adults within a 30cm radius and there is one actually sitting right above the egg mass.
Locality: Gulewa, Misima Island, 1m, Papua New Guinea, 12 August 2006, silty, reef wall, grotto into island. Length: 15mm. Photographer: Greg Rouse.

Thanks for the record. This is certainly at the pale end of the colour variation in this species but the yellow tips to the gills and rhinophores seem to be a positive character when present.
