Gonodactylus platysoma, UV-excited fluorescence

From http://arthropoda.southernfriedscience.com/?p=2592 : 
I talked previously about fluorescence in stomatopods here. However, I don’t know if the patterns on G. platysoma are used to amplify any particular signals. These animals live in shallow water and would have less use for fluorescent signal amplification.”
