PHOTOS: Upper & Lower Right: ex Ev Marcus - no data on slide. Possibly Holotype.
Lower left: Labelled 'Hyps marci? Aug 1977. Ilha Dos Porcos' by Ev Marcus. [I assume 'Ilha Dos Porcos' refers to a place just south of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil]. Photographers: unknown.
I suspect the Lower Right photo may be the holotype specimen as the drawing in the original description of the mantle edge is almost identical. This is no way to be sure. Considering the confusion surrounding this name, and the little information we have about it, I feel it is useful to post these photos as they indicate Eveline Marcus's concept of the species. It seems very similar to Hypselodoris acriba.
