Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #12687
This has many more spots than usual around the mantle and on the foot, but is the best identification for now.

Let's put this with H. formosa for now!

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #13668
A rather unusual individual without the extra yellow lines in the cavities between the ridges, and rather too many spots around the margin!

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #14297
this is formosa, not punctata!

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #13857
You can see the spots at the front and back of the mantle.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #16068
Orange/yellow ridges and few to more spots on foot and around margin - always anteriorly and posteriorly.
