Phyllidiopsis krempfi? from Jordan

December 16, 2002
From: Erwin Koehler

Dear Bill,
Attached are 2 pictures of Phyllidiopsis krempfi(?). I photographed it at Jordan, Aqaba, divesite "First Bay" on 13 November 2002.

It's size was 48mm, the depth 17m.

I think the close-up of the head shows the structure of the rhinopores pretty well.

Note added 9 Sept 2003: This is P. sinaiensis - see M. Schroedl's message.

Dear Erwin,
I would agree that this is most probably Phyllidiopsis krempfi. Even it turns out to be something else, I must agree that you've done an excellent job with the rhinophore photo
