In some cases in this study, cryptic species did show morphological differences. For instance, Gosliner and Behrens (1998) noted variation in the orange colouration on the gills and orange markings along the margin in C. dianae, but this study shows that these morphotypes correspond to different taxa. Most notably, only the gill tips appear orange in C. dianae, while C. cf. dianae has orange colouration along the outside of the whole gill and has orange spots along the margin.
