Comment from Richard Willan on photo #5821
Probably like a juvenile individual.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #740
Note how in this species the rhinophores are located far back on the head at the level of the start of the parapodia. No two individuals are coloured the same, so colour pattern is not a good way to recognise this species.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1451
The very small rhinophores located far back on the head close to the opening of the parapodia characterise this species. No two individuals are coloured the same!

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #917
An individual with a very unusual colour pattern
