Kaloplocamus maru from Raja Ampat, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is one of 2 species of Kaloplocamus with delicate long thin simple papillae all over the body so they look ‘fuzzy’ when seen close up. Kaloplocamus maru is characterised by the brownish body with a mid-dorsal white ridge, and by the presence of relatively few papillae on the body itself. This is a new record for Indonesia; previously Kaloplocamus maru was only known from the island of Palau.
 

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Same as previous animal though different view and with eggs!
