Identification

Confidence: high

C. urodeta is most readily distinguished by the 'flag' pattern on the tail. C. urodeta, C. sonnerati, and C. spilopraea all have a similar pattern on the head. The C. urodeta head shot identification is based on the two black spots on the lower lip. This seems to be unique to this species but needs further investigation.
