NOTE: 08/08/2018 These specimens were found in the Pumicestone Passage and on Currimundi Reef.
They have a somewhat different appearance to those more recently found in the Mooloolah River that have been DNA sequenced
and shown to be not Godiva quadricolor hence their name Godiva sp. 2. It may eventually be shown that those on this page are also not
Godiva quadricolor but we leave them here as such until proven otherwise.
