Marionia cf rubra (Rüppell & Leuckart, 1828)

This may be the green form of Marionia rubra. It was a large specimen, probably 75-100mm, and was under a large piece of trash along with an egg mass in the channel off Bethlehem. We are keeping it separate because it looked quite different from a red Marionia that also looks like the Marionia rubra figured in Gosliner et al, 2015.

The egg mass.
