Yeah, it does a little! It has a bubble body too!

That's cool, you found ID. I prefer it all red, looks like it has only one large eye in the center, like a cyclops.

See reference... Somehow it seems strange that one species can vary so much in morphology.

Me too Sckel. Very small and bright. I have never seen one like it.
