Tritonia striata from Malta

July 18, 2007
From: Patricia Peels

Dear Bill

According to our books this is Tritonia striata. Can you confirm this? We noticed that you don't have it on your website yet. Unfortunately the quality of the pictures is not great - it was quite a small nudi, as you can see in relations to the hand.

We found it floating in mid-water, but it was close to a rocky ledge.

Locality: Cirkewwa, 12 m, Malta, Mediterranean, 19 May 2007, floating in mid-water. Length: 5 mm. Photographer: Patricia Peels.

Thank you and best regards,
Patricia Peels

Dear Patricia,

Thanks for a new species for the Forum. I don't know much about this species, which seems to have only been seen in the western Mediterranean

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
