Description Colour in life: disc with thin gold radiating lines on a dark brown background, long dark brown arm spines, dumb-bell-shaped gold and cream bands on the dorsal arm plates which were otherwise dark brown, ventral arm plates with a similar pattern, oral shields dark brown with white lateral edges (Sloan et al., 1979). Description: arm length to 4 cm, disc diameter to 10 mm. Disc granules uniform in size, covering the radial shields, extending into a V-shaped interradial area orally. Aboral arm plates distally broader and convex. Oral arm plates broad. Up to six arm spines, thick, flat, or round and pointed, upper ones longest. Arms with long spines and white banding. Habitat: among coral (Tortonese, 1980).
Also distributed in Gilbert Islands, Tuamotus (Clark, 1954); SE Arabia, Maldive area, Ceylon, East Indies, north Australia, Philippine, China, south Japan, south Pacific Is. and Hawaiian Is. (Clark & Rowe, 1971); Australia (Kalk (1958) and Rowe & Gates (1995)); Lakshadweep (India) in Sastry (1991).
General distribution: from the Red Sea to Hawaii and SE Polynesia (Tortonese, 1980); WIO, Red Sea to W Pacific (Richmond, 1998); tropical, Indo-Pacific Ocean, littoral waters (Kalk (1958) and Rowe & Gates (1995)); East coast of Africa to Hawaiian Islands in Sastry (1991).
Ecology: benthic, inshore (Rowe & Gates, 1995). [details]
