C.armata is common species at Osezaki, Izu-peninsula, Japan. It was seen in spring to early summer. It is mostly active only at night.
Photos: Upper: Length 120mm; Depth 15m; at night, diving; April 2002. Lower Left: Late spring is mating season. I saw this couple and some egg-masses while night diving in May 2002. Lower Right: Juvenile, Length 15mm; Depth 12m; at night, diving; July 2002.
Sorry it has taken a while to post these interesting photos. It is good to clarify the identity of this common Japanese animal. It is strange that Baba did not name this animal until 1993.
