Dear Séverine
>From your picture, it seems the lobes on segment 1 are larger than those of
some specimens of Pista cristata from North Atlantic I have examined. None
of them had eyespots, but these may fade and disappear in preserved
material, and all those specimens were collected a long time ago. On the
other hand, according to the literature, few species of Pista were described
as having eyespots and all specimens I have seen alive did not have them.
Good luck
