Comment from Jamie R. Dutton: "The black body of this species is studded with pinkish nodules, which may appear green underwater. Typical of its family, it feeds on poisonous sponges, concentrating the toxin in its tissues as a defense against predation." John P. Hoover, Hawaii's Sea Creatures revised ed. 2006
