Hi Bill,

I have never seen a European Trapania sp. like this one found by Constantine. According to the photos it seems to me different from T. graeffei (Bergh, 1880) (Italy-Adriatic Sea). Unfortunately, there are no more records of this species. Probably, it is an undescribed species.
More information about Mediterranean and Atlantic species of Trapania are supplied in:

J.L. CERVERA, J.C. GARCIA-GOMEZ and C. MEGINA. (2000) A new species of Trapania Pruvot-Fol, 1931 from the Bay of Cadiz, with remarks on other Trapania species (Nudibranchia: Goniodorididae). Ophelia, 52(1): 17-24.
