Notes

  • Dr Leigh Winsor 18 April 2018
    Dr Leigh Winsor says

    This specimen is probably a juvenile of Caenoplana dendyi. Young specimens are generally much paler than the adult, though they have the basic colouration and pattern of the adult. The ventral surface exhibits brown mottling that will occupy the outer thirds of the ventral surface, leaving the cobalt blue along the mid-line.
