Comment from Richard Willan: Costasiella sp. and Stiliger ornatus are small sap-suckers that have almost identical in external appearance and coloration, particularly the golden cerata with a subterminal black ring. They differences are very subtle. Costasiella sp. has its eyes touching on top of its head whereas Stiliger ornatus has them separated and a black stripe in between. Costasiella sp. has pointed rhinophores whereas Stiliger ornatus has blunt ones.
