Classic Indian Ocean individual.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #19545
Clearly the same specimen. In this one the red submarginal band is visible.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #20482
The white pustules on a black dorsum and the gills & rhinophores at the far ends are diagnostic. However, I have never seen one with small spots centrally and larger spots marginally.

An individual belonging to the colour form with a red submarginal band and no white speckles dorsally on the mantle.
