Comment from the photographer: I have looked up several different sites searching this species name and not found a picture the same.
Have I identified correctly
Comment from Lawrence Neal: Your ID is correct. The ocelli on the body are distinctive. Nice pic, as individuals are usually obscured by sand. This species is common in the shallows (less than 2 m) in Thailand, usually in sandy areas close to rocks, like you find at beach headlands. At Pattaya, sometimes hundreds can be found at Koh Rin and Koh Sark (and no doubt many other similar sites). It's also present in the Andaman Sea (easy to find close to rocks on Khao Lak Beach in ankle-deep water). Andaman Sea specimens are similar to those at Pattaya. Because it's usually found in very shallow water in Thailand, perhaps divers don't often see or photograph them...
