Dear Bill,
Is Facelina rhodopos the same as my animal from Malaysia?
Best Regards,
Nishina Masayoshi

Dear Nishina,
I am sure you are right. Its good to solve another 'unidentified' species and to extend its known distribution fron the Red Sea to Malaysia. If we also include the animal identified in Mr.Ono's book as Eubranchus sp. [on page 159], its distribution can be extended to Kerama Ids in southern Japan. Its colour, long 'tail', obliquely lamellate rhinophores, and ceratal shape all match Yonow's description.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
