By scuba diver during a night dive at 9 to 12 meters on Airport Reef. I see a near perfect shell. Just a tiny less glossy spot on base. Almost 30 mm of pure beauty in this hard to find tessellata with very dark checkers and a range of different colors.

Very beautiful luster. Gorgeous shell, very big size for the species, very fresh (2010). Very glossy, perfect base and extremities, despite a scar probably due to fish attack on the dorsum as shown on pictures, healed very nicely.
