Blue Spot Juvenile Mystery


Was hoping someone could help ID the little guy below.  There were a fair number of them (10 plus) on a recent dive on the wreck of the Pocahontas off the coast of Wilmington North Carolina.  I thought them a juvenile Slippery Dick (insert your own joke here :)  ) but that bright blue spot seems so distinctive and I can't find it on any ID photos.  Thanks in advance for any help.




Slippery Dick

Yes, that's a Slippery Dick. Juveniles often have an ocellus on the 2nd dorsal.


Cool, thanks.

Cool, thanks.
