Aegires sp. 06 is characterized by a pale violet backgound colour with diffuse orange patches, some its tubercles have yellow tips, most tubercles have purple tips, some tubercles have a subapical yellow ring. One of the rhinophores has an outer orange half, the other one is solid violet.
This species is most likely a colour form of Aegires sp. 04, that is of Aegires sp. 4 in IPN at page 144.
I will keep them seperate until the dust settles.
