Cintetorhynchus rigens - Martinique, groupe BIOSPHERES, November 2015, coll. R. Ferry, Y. Buske., det. J. Poupin (see comment).
Comment: Color pattern of Martinique specimen (groupe BIOSPHERES) matches the pattern sometimes attributed to C. manningi in regional field guides. However, there are 3 arthrobranchs (on P1/P2/P3) on specimen examined while only one is present (on P1) in C. manningi.
