Dear Bill,

Here is an other interesting photo from Antalya, Turkey. It looks like Facelina rubrovittata. If so, I think this is also a new record for the Eastern Mediterranean malacofauna.

Place: Antalya, Turkey
Dive site: Uc Adalar
Depth: 4m
Size: 1cm
Date: June 2001

Dear Baki,
It certainly looks like Facelina rubrovittata. As you say, this is another interesting expansion to the known geographic range of the species.
best wishes,
Bill Rudman
