Concerning message #22026:

Dear Bill,
Within a few meters from each other, we found several gray and black Thecacera picta on the sandy bottom of Anilao Secret Bay dive site. I think this supports the link with the white T. picta, as per the previous message.

Locality: Anilao, 10 meters, Philippines, 1 January 2009, sandy, flat bottom . Length: 2 cm. Photographer: Marcel Tanke.

Best regards,
Marcel

Thanks Marcel,

I think that we can be pretty certain that these are all one species

Best wishes,
