Peltodoris fellowsi from Lifou

January 30, 2001
From: Bill Rudman

To accompany Hideyuki Takasu's message on Peltodoris fellowsi from Japan, here are a couple of photos of it from Lifou, Loyalty Ids., east of New Caledonia. I have not as yet had a chance to examine its anatomy, but externally it fits Kay & Young's original description well, except that they describe the rhinophore stalks and gill rachids to be red-brown whereas in the Lifou specimens they are translucent white.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
