UFESAbout UFES 173 (4 specimens) and UFBA 0 2807 (1 specimen) from Diogo Vaz, São Tomé. The animals at São Tomé appear somewhat different in color from those in the western Atlantic (see the photo on page 204 in Debelius, 1998). Genetic comparisons are being carried out by L. Rocha. A juvenile was observed cleaning a Green Turtle, Chelonia mydas (Linnaeus, 1758)  , in 12 m depth by CLS at Diogo Vaz.
