Okenia elegans from Scotland

December 20, 2000
From: Daniel L. Geiger

Hi Bill,

I wanted to mention for a long time an additional record and range extension for the European Okenia elegans. I photographed it in St. Kilda, Outer Hebrides, in Scotland, June 1993. [Dun, Village Bay in 15m water on a vertical wall covered in Bugula type bryozoans].

The find has been published in:
Ellis, J. R., P. S. Cadman, S. B. Piertney & D. L. Geiger, 1995. The marine fauna of the St. Kilda archipelago (Outer Hebrides). Scottish Naturalist, 107: 53-70.

It may have escaped the nudibranch radar screen of many people.

Best wishes

Thanks Daniel,
Bill Rudman.
