Husbandry

(Michelin, 1843)

We extend special thanks to Philippe & Guido T. Poppe von Poppe Images, Marine Iconography of the Philippines Archipelago who provided this excellent photo.

Very special thanks to Prof. Dr. Joshua Feingold, who sent us the second photo of Diaseris distorta.

Colour: Cream or brown, sometimes mottled.

Habitat: Soft substrates, especially where exposed to currents. Sometimes found in seagrass beds.

Abundance: Uncommon, but may be plentiful where it occurs.

Depth range 0 - 40 m
