Tritonia pickensi Marcus & Marcus, 1967

Tritonia pickensi is transluscent white with a wide central, opaque white band. This band has a small opening just behind the rhinophores.

Tritonia pickensi live, spawn and feed on red gorgonian genus Lophogorgia.

Very similar is Tritonia myrakeenae(creamy orange or brownish with a few white patches or streaks) and Tritonia festiva (is bigger, 7 cm in lenght, opaque white reticulate lines and circles).
