'Trailing' in Platydoris argo

August 11, 2000
From: Eriwn Koehler

Bill,
Here are some photos of Platydoris argo showing 'trailing' behaviour, like in Risbecia, from my recent trip to Spain, Cala Joncols near Roses (Costa Brava), July 2000. I met within a week 10 individuals, 4 pairs "trailing".

Data:
ek113036: July 28, divesite "La Caverna", depth 12m, size 97mm (left one) and 85mm
ek113222: July 29, divesite "Punta de las Figueras", depth 18m, size 104mm and 108mm (upper one)
ek113431: July 30, divesite "La Piscina", depth 18m, size 124mm (left one) and 89mm
ek113434: same pair as ek113431

Dear Erwin,
I have put your other photos as a separate message.

I find your observations of Platydoris trailing very interesting. I can't say I have seen any reference to Indo-West Pacific species trailing, so if anyone has observed other species with this behaviour it would be interesting to hear about it.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
