Platydoris argo with damaged mantle

September 8, 2008
From: Dominique Horst


Hi Bill,

This nice Platydoris argo was probably bitten by a predator.
The cut is large, but not I am not sure that any vital organ was damaged?

Locality: Cagnes, 6 m, France, Mediterranean sea, 27 August 2008, muddy. Length: 60 mm. Photographer: Dominique Horst.

Kind regards,
Dom.

Dear Dom,

It doesn't look as though anything vital was damaged - just the mantle 'skirt' which I guess will grow again. It gives us a good view of the head and tentacles which are usually hidden by the mantle skirt.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
