From: Jim Anderson

Dear Bill,
Attached are two of my images which Mikael Thollesson has identified as Dendronotus lacteus.

Upper Image - September 1998. The Summer Isles on the west coast of Scotland.
In abundance on the kelp fronds at 7 -10 metres. Approx. 35mm long.
Lower Image - September 1997. At the Garvellachs on the west coast of Scotland.
The front end of a large approx. 90mm long individual.

Kind regards,
Jim Anderson
