Stiliger cf smaragdinus Baba, 1949

These animals both crawled off a sample of Caulerpa algae some weeks after it was placed into an aquarium. It is likely a form of Stiliger smaragdinus, we are keeping it separate for now because of its somewhat different appearance, particularly the very inflated dorsal balls with blue circular bases. Possibly the differences can be attributed to developing in an aquarium.

A smaller specimen.
