A mating pair.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1018
I use this species name tsurugensis with hesitation for these small, plump, dark animals of Chelidonura. The range of body colours and relationships between Chelidonura tsurugensis, Chelidonura sandrana and Chelidonura babai are not understood at present.
