Comment from Alexander Martynov on photo #2256
This is a short-papillae variety of common species Coryphella verrucosa. Exactly on the short-papillae variety
was based first description (M.Sars, 1829) of Coryphella verrucosa.
Currently considered that both short and long-papillae forms constitute single species Coryphella verrucosa.
