Concerning message #16619:
Thank you for your identification of Hypselodoris malacitana from Dakar. I didn't thought about this species because originally it was considered as restricted to the Mediterranean, but I agree that externally Senegalese animals fit this species quite well. Hypselodoris malacitana always troubled me because externally it is almost identical to Atlantic Hypselodoris cantabrica. Are they really different? Unfortunately I don't have Ortea et al (1996) paper to see better the differences.

I totally agree with your doubts about H. cantabrica and H. malacitana which I have discussed in an earlier message [#14740]. Clearly there is more work to be done with this group. I don't suppose you would have any photos of the egg ribbons of Seneglaese animals. It would be nice to compare them with your photos of H. cantabrica [#12746 ].
