Dear Bill,

Attached is a recent image of Rostanga rubra the above.

Data: Ross Carr, Eyemouth [southeast coast], Scotland. 1 August, 2004. Water temperature 14°C. This 10mm long animal was found on the reef at 14 metres on the ebb tide. Photo: Jim Anderson.
['carr' is a local word for these underwater rocky reefs that do not break the surface]

Thanks Jim,
The white line between the two rhinophore pockets seems to be a chracteristic of this species. It makes me wonder if the animal Michel Barrabés photos in Erwin Koehler's message [#6270] is the same species. Perhaps there is a faint trace of the white line, I am not sure
Best wishes
