Flabellina lineata from France

Hallo Bill

Please link these data and images to the records of the Netherlands.

Enclosed you will find two images of Coryphella lineata. Both photographs
were made near Trebeurden (Bretagne, France) in June 1995.

This nudi is very rare in the Netherlands. So far it was only found twice. Once in 1954 washed ashore on a buoy and once in 1970 far out on the North Sea. As it is a common species on the European atlantic coast there is a fair chance that it will be found again on the Dutch coast in the near future. We'll keep you informed.

Best regards
Peter H. van Bragt

Dear Peter,
To prevent confusion I have changed to genus name you are using from Coryphella to Flabellina. I think all nudbranch taxonomists now consider Coryphella to be a synonym of Flabellina. I wish you luck in finding specimens of this species in the Netherlands.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
