Description:

C. crispus is very variable in form, and some of the other iSpots of “C. crispus” have turned out to be something else. I have posted this photo to complement the one posted by ollieaaron on 19.12.11, which is a much thinner specimen of the same species, together with the main diagnostic features given by Marlin.
