I think so. gemmata and krempfi are still problematic in the Indian Ocean.

Gemmata is characterised by 4 black lines, usually meeting at the rhinophores in TWO pairs, and short perpendicular lines around the margin.

Two pairs of black lines meeting at the rhinophores and extending to the mantle as two lines; the outer two also meet posteriorly and extend to the mantle in one line.

The more of these I see, the clearer gemmata becomes. I am now wondering if the others on this page, with only rings of tubercles are something totally different??

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #21225
This is a perfect example of gemmata, with 4 black lines meeting anteriorly, separated posteriorly, and short perpendicular lines around the margin.

A messy specimen, but it fits the picture as I now see it.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #25083
This seems to be a large individual, with the normally simple tubercles now quite compound.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #21152
Note the simple tubercles.

A juvenile individual. Note the simple tubercles.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #19662
This is an atypical individual with particularly broad black longitudinal stripes.

Four strong black lines and the perpendicular ones combined with the domed profile are indicative of gemmata. Also krempfi is not yet recorded fromt he western Indian ocean.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #15839
It looks like gemmata, characterised by four strong black lines and a very domed profile. Also, the perpendicular-ish black lines on the sides are typical.
