Dear Bill,
Thanks for pointing out the unpigmented pericardium in this animal [message #13202]. I hadn't really paid attention to that before. One other thing that I should mention is that in 1995 I also collected 2 specimens without the orange/brown tips on the cerata. I had only collected one animal along with all the E. emarginata, and couldn't understand why it didn't copulate with the others - or produce any eggs - until I collected the second specimen! So there is apparently a "sibling" species, but since I only have those 2 specimens, they are still sitting on my shelf.
