Concerning message #19900:
It is with great excitement that I report finding this species [Janolus sp. 10 ] on Northwest Vancouver Island near the community of Winter Harbour - a very long way from Sechelt and Nelson Island where I know there to have been previous sightings.
Locality: Winter Harbour, 47', British Columbia, Pacific Ocean, 15 March 2008, Muddy. Length: 8 cm. Photographer: Jackie Hildering.

Dear Jackie and Glen,
I agree, this is a pretty neat find. I can just make out the branching of the gut in the "cerata", separating it from a Dirona albolineata. This only leaves, as you have suggested, our Janolus sp. 10 on The Forum, and Janolus sp. 2 in Behrens and Hermosillo. I would be neat if you could determine what this rare species is feeding on.
Thanks for sharing this,
