Concerning message #22611:

Dear Bill,

This is our second sighting in the UK of Doris ocelligera. If you look closely you can see that there are actually two animals, overlapping each other. Both this and the earlier specimen were recorded in very similar habitats - weed covered wrecks at about 25 m.

Locality: Wreck of the Epsilon, near Falmouth, Cornwall, 24 m, United Kingdom, Atlantic, 27 July 2004, Weed-covered wreck with many jewel and plumose anemones. Length: 15 mm. Photographer: David Kipling.

Best regards
