Species Account:

        Plocamopherus sp. 1 is considered to be very rare on Okinawa as I have seen and collected but a single specimen. The animal was found on the underside of a large slab of coral rubble as it was overturned. There are currently (mid-March., 2012) four described species of Plocamopherus found in Okinawan waters, P. ceylonicus, P. imperialis, P. maculatus and P. tilesii.
