Hello, all,

a couple of years ago i found a lot of Cyphoma gibbosum, and one which is quite different. it is more elongate, white instead of orange, and it seems to have a second 'rim'. could it be signatum or mcgintyi?

will post a picture soon.

regards,
Jeroen

Dear Jeroen,

it is nearly impossible to know the ID of a Cyphoma species by description alone. At least a picture is important.

Ciao, Dirk

hello

here i am with some pictures...
however not the best pictures i can take with my camera.. lichting is not well.. however the difference between the shells is visible..

i think it is a signatum?
the smaller shells are two regular C gibbosum which i found on the same day and on the same reef.
the shells were all empty.

regards,
Jeroen

the shells were all empty, so i can't tell you if there were differencies between the animals.
