Hi Bill and everyone!
After reminiscing over one of the early Forum entries from 2003 [message #8817 ], I thought I would send you three photos of a fairly common species here. I noticed there have not any entries since 2003! So here ya go!
They are large and beautiful. Presenting Halgerda aurantiomaculata.
Locality: Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast, 15 m, Queensland, Australia, Pacific Ocean, 11 November 2008, Subtidal and Intertidal. Length: 40-70 mm. Photographer: Gary Cobb.
