Description Up to 7 cm long. Similar to Onchidium sp. but distinguished by its smaller size and the presence of gills on the posterior third of the body. Eye spots are very obvious, usually with 3 or 4 (up to 6) on a tubercle. Body evenly tuberculate, pale with dark pigment between and around tubercles, and covered in small white spots under the surface. These, the eye spots and the gills are easily seen with a hand lens. Specimens greater than 4 cm are greenish ventrally with the colour concentrated around the edge of the foot. Habitat: upper eulittoral on rocky ground, during daytime on rocky ground in channels in mangrove forest. Distribution: Indo-Pacific. N.B. used locally as fish bait. [details]
