  1. i am not sure but in palawan the grayish variety is called ‘kalamuoy’, and the reddish one is ‘kanamel’. looks like ‘dalagang bukid lapad’ (flattish dalagang bukid as opposed to the rounder species of the same coloration) bu grows much larger. found in deeper water in schools. indiscriminately bites when found.
