Eight-armed sea star

Luidia maculata


Quite a neutral colour scheme. Dark brown blotches/ stripes and a lovely dark brown star in the centre interspersed with neutral.


Found on the shores of Otres beach.


This maybe threatened, but I am not sure.

Thanks for your comments and thanks for your suggestion of ID Mark. It does look like that one from Singapore, although this was in Cambodia.
Yes we are 3 little Toddies... No question of a doubt. 20 months.
