Description Colour in life: disc grey with irregular dark markings, dark pattern more prominent in smaller specimens, arms mottled white and grey with dark spots, short spines white, ventrally off-white with grey blotches overall (Humphreys, 1981). Description: arm length to 16 cm, disc diameter to 15 mm. Dorsal side of the disc with small imbricated plates, larger marginally and between the radial shields; ventral side of the disc with smaller plates and fine granules near the oral shields. Genital slits longwith genital papillae, not extending to the dorsal side. Radial shields small, longer, narrow, widely separated. Oral shields longer than broad, blunt tip proximally. Adoral shields long, not meeting. Oral plates with 5-6 papillae on each side. Aboral arm plates broader than long, broader proximally. A pair of supplementary arm plates, broader distally, as long as the segment. Three arm spines, the middle one longer and blunt. Colour variable; disc grey to pale green with irregular black markings, arms mottled and with faint banding. Habitat: lower eulittoral and deeper on diverse substrates.
Also distributed in Gilbert Islands, Saipan (Clark, 1954); Maldive area, Ceylon, Bay of Bengal, 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: Tropical Indo-Pacific in Kalk (1958); WIO, Red Sea to W Pacific (Richmond, 1998); tropical, Indo-west Pacific Ocean, depth range 0-33 m. (Rowe & Gates, 1995); East coast of Africa to Hawaiian Islands in Sastry (1991).
Ecology: benthic, inshore (Rowe & Gates,1995). [details]
