There were three of these in the same general area, two on a dead sea rod. Closest match seems to be Cyphoma gibbosum, but I have never seen them with this pink coloration. Is it C. gibbosum?

Thanks!

This is Cyphoma rhomba. The first picture of a live animal I see. Convincingly different. Well done!

Thanks for the ID, Felix. The photo was taken by Cindy Abgarian.

I note that photo A205 in "The Living Ovulidae" is labelled as Cyphoma sedlaki, but in the index the same photo is referred to Cyphoma rhomba. Which is it?

Hmmm, sedlaki is correct. no idea how this mixup happened, but I suppose it was my fault. Sorry
