Laila cockerelli: 3rd colour variation

June 14, 2001
From: Marli Wakeling

Hi Bill,
Just wanted to let you know that the third colour variation I found in Barclay Sound, BC. My camera was dead, but I had a friend photograph it and Dave Behrens confirmed it... along way from its "home" in Santa Barbara, California. I guess it's because there aren't many of us looking that the ranges are so inaccurate in this part of the world, and I venture to guess elsewhere. Keep up the fine work!

Dear Marli,
Thanks for keeping us up to date on this information. I often think that the 'known distributions' of many nudibranchs tend to tell us more about the known distributions of opisthobranch workers rather than that of the slugs.
