Concerning the message on P. fellowsi. Just to set the record straight; Peltodoris fellowsi has not been considered an Hawaiian endemic species for some years. Edmunds & Preece (1996: 413) recorded it from Henderson Island which is part of the Pitcairn group of islands at the easternmost limit of the Pacific Plate. Their specimens were collected intertidally during the Sir Peter Scott Commemorative Expedition in 1991.

Your welcome correction only goes to confirm what I said to Steve Wheeler in a recent message. Mistakes don't last long on the Forum. There is indeed rigorous, and almost instantaneous, peer review.
