Dear Bill,

Three years ago I found one specimen, like that from Michel's photograph, at the Bay of Algeciras (Strait of Gibraltar). Their coloration resembles in some aspects the Mediterranean species called by Schmekel Cuthona maua (I'm not convinced that the true maua from Brazil is the same species than in the Mediterranean), but is definitively different. So, I think probably we would have in front of us another small undescribed aeolid species from Europe.

Thanks Lucas,
