Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2140
Comment from Dr. Richard C. Willan: This is an interesting individual because it has characters of both Trapania darvelli and Trapania aurata. And yet it also has some features different to them both: (a) its darker markings are orange, whereas those of Trapania darvelli are brown and those of Trapania aurata are golden-yellow, and (b) unlike both these species, it has no darker markings on either the extra-rhinophoral processes of the extra-branchial processes.
