Philinopsis speciosa is a widespread Indo-West
Pacific species which has been
identified in most places as Philinopsis cyanea,
It was also originally posted on these pages as Philinopsis cyanea.
Because Philinopsis speciosa is the older name, as well as the type
of the genus, I replace the more commonly used Philinopsis cyanea.
