Comment from Richard Willan on photo #7496
It is easy to recognise Ceratosoma moloch (photo no. 6) and to separate it from Ceratosoma alleni because Ceratosoma alleni has very tall lobes covered in tubercles, especially 2 in the dorsal midline. Neither of these tall lobes are present in Ceratosoma moloch.
