||Pseudoceros scintillatus is known to display an even velvety
black background combined with an orange marginal band and numerous large
irregularly sized yellow-green maculae, each macula encircled by white,
the typical color pattern of P. scintillatus (Newman & Cannon, 1994).
However, a significant variability in size and extension of maculae can
be observed. Maculae can vary from a single and separate arrangement (see
introductory page on "Species Variation and
Diversity") to a highly dense or even confluent pattern. It remains
to be shown, if this worm is a variant of P. scintillatus or if
it resembles a similiar but genetically distinct species.
