Aphelodoris antillensis from Colombia

March 2, 2003
From: Nestor E. Ardila

Dear Bill,
Here are some photos of a specimen of Aphelodoris antillensis Bergh, 1879 which was collected manually, in Santa Marta (rocky shore), Colombia, Caribbean coast. It was 7 mm long alive. I have also sent photos of the radula and lateral view too. I didn't see pictures of this species in the Forum.

Thanks in advance!!


Thanks Nestor,
Like many Caribbean species, we don't know much about Aphelodoris antillensis. It is possible the yellow border in your animal is a juvenile characteristic.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
