The dark blue coloration and small spines identifies this pretty Globular Sea Urchin (Mespilia globulus). This specimen is sitting on top of a coral reef head on a fringing reef next to an island in the Banda Sea, Indonesia.
This urchin is also known as the Pincushion Tuxedo Urchin and the Shortspine Urchin.
