Cuthona fulgens from Oregon

From: Jeff Goddard

Hi Bill,

To round out the recent comparison of species of Cuthona from the northeast Pacific Ocean, here is an image of a Cuthona fulgens from Cape Arago, Oregon. Although it's an old image taken in a finger bowl, it should at least fill the gap until someone submits a better, in situ image. I have found this species as far north as the Olympic Peninsula, Washington.

Locality: Cape Arago, Oregon, USA. Pacific Ocean: Intertidal, Length: 9 mm. August 1983. Rocky shore, low intertidal pool. Photographer: Jeff Goddard

  • Goddard, J.H.R., Wayne, T.A. & Wayne, K.R. (1997) Opisthobranch mollusks and the pulmonate limpet Trimusculus reticulatus (Sowerby, 1835) from the outer Washington coast. The Veliger, 40(4): 292-297.

Best wishes,
