Zoila rosselli


A stunning Zoila group, a completely black patterned specimen (rosselli satiata) is highly sought after by collectors. Most specimens have a small white dorsum window (rosselli rosselli). Collected by divers from 25 - 45 metres from Point Quoba in the North to the Recherche Archipelago on the Southern Western Australian coast.

This is another Zoila family which normally has flaws, from chipped canals, growth scars and the most common problem being white polish blemishes that are very noticeable against the black background.
