Looking on the net it looks like the spelling is really: Cyptotrama asprata. You’ve got an extra ‘e’ in there, unless everyone else has this spelled wrong…

When in doubt, hit the ’Net!

Here’s a nice undercover gill shot by Greg Mueller of the Field Museum. My specimen wasn’t quite so adorable and fuzzy; it had been raining buckets. Still, a big surprise and a new genus for me.


Sorry to have personally disappointed you, Doug. We’ll try harder, next time!
