Ceratosoma magnifica

[sic]


Jon Chamberlain The truely magnificent Miamira magnifica, found at Sampela, Wakatobi, Indonesia. This is the correct name Scuba Jase, it was synonymised with Ceratosoma magnifica. Get a new book dude! Well done for spotting it first though :)

Jon Chamberlain Check out the SSF pics (halfway down) to see the funky underside of this species: http://www.seaslugforum.net/showall/ceramiam Thanks Lindz for suggesting that!

Scuba Jase I think it was Cerasotoma reticulata in the book that Imin had and it was one of the newer books too. It's all too confusing :p btw, credit should go to Adam Miller who spotted it first. I was his buddy and the one holding a camera at the time

Jon Chamberlain Wow that's a bit of a cockup! Probably thought nobody would be OCD enough to check... Adam may have got the Cha Chas but you get the photo credit ;)
