I would appreciate any information you could send me regarding Black Turban Sea Slugs that are found in the Carpenteria Area of California.
Thank You

Dear Tom,
The name is not familiar to me but perhaps someone from California will know what a 'black turban sea slug' is. There are intertidal snails known as Turban Snails (Family Turbinidae) - but I don't know of slugs with that common name.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
