Glossodoris sp.14 - more photos [1]

July 18, 2005
From: Roberto Sozzani


Dear Bill,
As anticipated in my previous message [#14225], I've found more photos about this species. They all have been shot in a single dive. Many specimens were scattered around, but I didn't take photos of all of them, thinking they were juveniles of Glossodoris atromarginata, because of their small size. Only now I understand how unusual was such a concentration of this rare species. These are photos of four different individuals, on different sponges or substrate. The dive site was a half mile long slope completely covered with different kind of anemones, with many small and large 'fan-like' sponges.

Locality: Pura Island - South side, Indonesia. Depth: 35 - 10 metres. Length: 15 - 20 mm. 23 February 2003. Slope with anemones and sponges. Photographer: Roberto Sozzani

Dear Roberto,
Thanks for these photos. Its great to get a series of photos of the same species and different growth forms of what is almost certainly the same sponge. Because species of sponges may have many growth forms and vary in colour, it is very difficult to identify them from photographs alone. This series should be very useful.

I have split your photos into 3 messages [see #14261, #14264 ]

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
