fromia sea star identification
 
Hi!

A friend of mine bought this star from a LFS. Can anyone tell me the classification of it?

Thanks,

I don't believe it is a fromia star, the picture isn't great but the blue tips at the ends of the legs lead me to believe it is a member of linkia multiflora, more specifically the red dalmation linkia.

it is either linkia multifora, or more likely leiaster glaber, how big is it?
