Husbandry

Calpurnus verrucosus (Linnaeus, 1758)

The picture shows a parasite for leathercorals (Sacrophyton) on which it can be found well disguised. The coral will be slowly harmed and do not open in future. So you should inspect intensive all new corals and stones. The animal is very difficult to discover because it is imitating the host perfectly. All too often you need a nightly inspection with a good flashlight.

Synonymised names:
Bulla verrucosa Linnaeus, 1758 (original combination)
Ovula perla Röding, 1798 (synonym)
Radius gibbus Rumphius, 1705 (non-binominal)
