Halgerda carlsoni Rudman, 1978

We saw only the two specimens below that would appear to be Halgerda carlsoni. More typical H. carlsoni have dense small orange spots in the valleys between the orange tipped points all over the dorsum. In ours, the orange spots are not distinct, but under looking at the original slide under magnifcation, it can be seen that the orange sheen between the larger orange tipped warts is indeed composed of numerous very tiny and close set orange specks. One specimen was found on 3 April 1994 at Nembelau Rock, Nggela.
