Atagema ornata

Atagema ornata and Atagema intecta both relate to the same species and we must use Atagema ornata (instead of Atagema intecta - which is more common in the literature) because it is the older name.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9030
A slightly atypical individual because of its pale orange (instead of chocolate-brown) background colour. Note the characteristic white flecks on the lamellae of the rhinophores.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2458
This photo shows the animal in profile from the right side, so the ragged white line (which is mid-dorsal) is right at the top.
