Comment from Richard Willan on photo #27993
The distinction between this species and Kaloplocamus peludo is becoming harder and harder to maintain as photos of more specimens become available.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #11343
This is one of 2 species of Kaloplocamus with delicate long thin simple papillae all over the body so they look ‘fuzzy’ when seen close up. Kaloplocamus maru is characterised by the brownish body with a mid-dorsal white ridge, and by the presence of relatively few papillae on the body itself. This is a new record for Indonesia; previously Kaloplocamus maru was only known from the island of Palau.
