Re: Trapania dalva - juvenile?

Dear Bill,
Concerning Linda's possible juveniles. In my earlier message I mentioned our publication of the description of a new species of Trapania, and also include some remarks on some uncommon Atlantic species of this genus, with a color plate of several Atlantic species of the genus. One of these uncommon species was Trapania dalva. Colin Redfern send me a small animal from Bahama, a photo of which is in the color plate. The color pattern of this animal was lighter, and the reproductive system was not mature.

Thanks Lucas,
This would support the suggestion that Linda's animals are juveniles
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
