Taken by compressor-divers at 15-20 meters. This is the giant form, often confused with the more common leviathan titan. Dorsum beautifully framed with a bluish halo. Outstanding quality for this easily flawed species.

Ein weitere Endemismus von Hawai, getaucht in nur 12m Tiefe bei Nacht auf Weichschwämmen, bei Halewa, Oahu.

Perfekte Erhaltung ohne Kratzer, tiefer Glanz des frisch strahlenden Schmelzes. Minimale, nur mit der Lupe oder auf dem XL Foto sichtbare Unregelmäßigkeit, keinerlei Wachstumslinien, sehr schönes Stück. Ex coll. Hemmen, ex coll. Reich.
