From: Bill Rudman

To accompany my other messages on Dunga ocellata [message #13245 ], here is a record of specimens from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Locality: North Reef (sewer pipe), entrance to Dar es Salaam Harbour, Tanzania. DSM26, 16 August 1973. Photos: Bill Rudman

12 specimens ranging in size from 17-8mm in length. The transparent skin of the body and cerata were covered in red-brown specks. No other colour was present except for the yellow and reddish bands at the tip of the cerata. In other specimens found in Dar es Salaam, white specks were also present.
