O Chierchiae Male Attempts Mating Through Door 5 25 2016

A small male O. chierchiae attempts to mate with a female who is blocking the entrance to her cavity using a piece of coral rubble as a door. The male successfully inserted his hectocotylus (third right arm visible at 4 o'clock) through a crack in the door and appeared to pass a spermatophore.
