Opisthobranchs from the Andaman Sea

October 9, 2008
From: Kathe R. Jensen

Dear Bill,

I have a new publication on opisthobranchs from the Andaman Sea, Thailand. It is in the most recent volume of the Phuket Marine Biological Center Research Bulletin (Vol. 68, pp. 21-30), which should be available for download on the PMBC web-site, but when I tried, I couldn't get it to work. So if any Forum users are interested in a pdf copy, please send me an e-mail.

The species included are: Philine cf. orientalis, Pleurobranchaea brockii, Euselenops luniceps, Kalinga ornata, Platydoris annulata and Ceratosoma sinuata. The specimens have been dredged from depths between 20 and 690 m, so the condition of specimens was generally poor, but a few examples were remarkably good. I attach photos of Platydoris annulata Dorgan, Valdès and Gosliner, 2002 because I think this is the first record since the original description.

Locality: Andaman Sea, 303-313 m, Thailand, Indian Ocean, 22 February 2000, dredged with Agassiz trawl. Length: approx. 40 mm preserved. Photographer: Kathe Jensen.

  • Jensen, K.R. 2008 (though it says 2007 on the reprint). The opisthobranch molluscs collected during the Thai-Danish BIOSHELF project in the Andaman Sea Thailand. Phuket Marine Biological Center Research Bulletin, 68: 21-30.

Best wishes,

Thanks Kathe,
