This is the first live image of Fastosarion minerva that Michael123 has seen and is an important reference sighting. Michael says "All the specimens of this species in museum collections are either empty shells or preserved specimens in ethanol. Ethanol does not preserve animal colour or animal shape very well, the animals are all basically an overall beige colour".
