    Thanks, this is a much-needed chart and will help a lot with IDs.

    Did you see many mimics and wunderpuses?- we get reports that they're increasingly difficult to find.

    This is an excellent resource -- thanks for posting it!

    I was just checking out our Ceph News page and I came across a great (award-winning, in fact) photo of the mimic in an open water column. You can clearly see those bright, continuous white lines along the base of the suckers.
