Hello,
In your superb Volume 1, you specify that lutea don't live beyond New Guinea and West Australia. But, there is a live colony of lutea in the lagoons of New Caledonia such many years.
I have in my collection, many specimen of this species, come from many place (Nouméa, Paagoumène, Le Mont Dore, and les Loyautés in the south east of the archipelago). Usually, they are collected in low tide, to 5 meters depth.

Can you confirm, or not, this situation far in Melanesia ?
Thank you

are you sure it is lutea, not humphreyii?? That would be a range extension far beyond the area that lutea is typically found. Perhaps submit a photo?? Thanks for this information

Thank your for answer Félix.

Yes, sure ! I have also humphreyii, of course, from New Caledonia.

I'll try to send you some pictures. A local diver have confirmed to me that living lutea are taken in the lagoon of New Caledonia.

Sure, they are far from their eastern limit, but a have no doudt about the veracity of his opinion.
Perhaps a allogenic population due of the commercial transport by boat ?

That's very interesting. It would confirm the validity of humphreyii, which has been a big question for me.
For sure the NC population constitutes a remarkable range extension. Looking forward to the photos!!
