Dear Paulay,
No we haven't done any molecular studies. Still I am trying to send these specimens to you expert to identify. So far I could not able to get permission to send these specimens out of the country.

We have huge catches from this species off Northern Sri Lanka but their market price is around 0.3 US$ per individual.

When I get permission I will definitely send you these specimens for identification

regards
chamari

Hi Chamari,

I am just back from the field.  You sent images of this species earlier as well.  This is likely a new species of Bohadschia.  I have not seen it anywhere.  It does not look like the argus-vitiensis hybrid, and you would not expect an entire population to consist of hybrids (where are the parent species)?  Good chance this is an endemic species to your area.  Would have to study and sequence to know for sure of course.

Cheers - Gustav

Dear Professor Conand,
We have huge catches of Bohadschia spp in the northern part of Sri Lanka and I am sending few photographs of landings and processed product

Hi Chantal

this is the one Sven and I call 'spotty' - the hybrid with argus as one parent

Hi Yves

Since I read the paper 2013 (thanks Franck), it looks funny to me also, as
there are no B. argus in the IO....meaning other hybridation ...

Bohadschia stories are not closed!!!

 Hi all



Same appeared to me... but a bit problematic as 'B maculisparsa' is not
supposed to be in the Indian Ocean. B. atra hybridizes too?



Cheers - Yves

Dear Chantal,

This looks like another example of whatSun, Alex and Gustav nominated as
a '...putative *argus-vitiensis* hybrid with *vitiensis* background
colour and ocellar spots similar to *argus*'. This is in their 2013 paper

in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society (Colour, confusion, and
crossing: resolution of species problems in *Bohadschia* (Echinodermata:
Holothuroidea).

Regards,

Frank

Dear colleagues

I just received this photo (without sample nor spicules) from Mauritius, I
believe it is a Bohadschia, but which species please?
Best regards from Paris
