Mr. Ono's aglajid seems to be a fairly common form that has generally escaped notice because of it's small size and color. Most of the forms we have found have various degrees of brown spotting on a tan
background. Two specimens in Palau were a fairly dark brown with tan margins. We have not seen one with thin crossing stripes. The average size of 21 measured specimens was just under 3mm.

Dear Clay & Patty Jo,
From your records and those of Atsushi Ono and Lindsay Warren it seems this is not uncommon. I have kept the other two? species, Atsushi sent photos of [aglajid sp 2, aglajid sp 3] separate at present.
