Eubranchus leopoldoi from the Bahamas

July 3, 2002
From: Colin Redfern

Dear Bill,
These are photos of Eubranchus leopoldoi Caballer, Ortea & Espinosa, 2001 from Abaco, Bahamas. The first two photos are of a 5mm specimen collected June 29, 1997 from floating Sargassum off the lee side of Guana Cay, Abaco. The ventral view is of a 6mm specimen collected July 12, 1992 from floating Sargassum off the ocean side of Whale Cay, Abaco. The photos are from Plate 122 of Bahamian Seashells, where the species was mistakenly listed as a Cuthona sp.

Thanks Colin,
It's difficult to keep up with the literature when things are published in obscure journals, not held in institutional libraries. The Australian Museum library is excellent but we can't afford to subscribe to all available journals, and Avicennia is a good example.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
