Danti Sari I think the spots in this picture are more obvious than the one i uploaded before,,, so,,, whats this??? Tambja verconis or Tambja sagamiana...... still not know,, what the differences between them,,,,

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Aaaaaa....nice one Danti :)

Danti Sari thanks Roy Arthur David Lontoh

Gary Cobb Tambja sagamiana

Gary Cobb We are only going by the description of morphology, in order to get the real species name we need to look inside the animal. I have not seen a Tambja verconis with blue circles outlined in black.

Danti Sari thanks Gary Cobb,, for the explanation

Gary Cobb You're as welcome as can be!

Patrik Good Love all your critters again, Geoffrey Van Damme. Too lazy to push the like button for all of them though. :-) Great advertising for your divesite too. It might be Tambja verconis by the way.

Geoffrey Van Damme Thanks Pat ,yes that's what it is.

Danti Sari i took this pic,, when i was diving at pramuka island,, (thousands islands) jakarta,, i dont know whats the name of this nudi,, but i really love this pic

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Tambja verconis??? Never cross in my mind that thousand islands has this kind of beauty little creature as well :) this is sooo cool!!

Danti Sari lucky me,,, could see this one in thousand islands,,,

Danti Sari thanks Evie Go,,, really appreciate

Gary Cobb I think this Tambja sagamiana (Baba, 1955)

Nick Missenden Isnt the Tambja sagamiana blue with yellow spots though?

Gary Cobb This species has a reverse colouration and is presently called Tambjs cf. sagamiana. According to Richard they seem to be the same species. Tambja verconis has irregular blue blotches not circles http://www.nudipixel.net/photo/00009909/

Gary Cobb The circles or true spots are outlined in T. sagamiana not so in T. veronis

Nick Missenden Yes im just looking at a picture I took of the Tambja verconis and can see the difference. Its hard to see the circles on this picture and it sooooo looks like one haha

Orietta Rivolta Beautiful nudi!

Danti Sari agree Orietta Rivolta
