Caloria indica (Bergh, 1896)

Caloria indica is sometimes seen placed in the genus Phidiana. There is still disagreement over the actual breakdown of some of these genera and families among the experts in the field. I occasionally found these in a variety of habitats, including Makua, Pupukea, Ewa, and Iriquois Channel on Oahu and Puako on Hawaii, but they were most common in the Magic Island channel. There we saw 30 specimens in 57 hours of sampling. Caloria sp. h185a might be the same species, but it seems just enough different in coloration that we are figuring it separately.
