Does anyone know if there is a species of Melibe that does not swim or has not been observed to swim? I'm interested in doing a comparative study with Melibe leonina. Melibe mirifica looks large enough and benthic enough that it might not swim. Any thoughts?
The only one I can think of that I don't think swims is the tiny Australian species Melibe australis. I soon as I get a chance to scan some photos I will prepare a page on the species.
