More records of Janolus mirabilis

July 1, 1999
From: Terry Gosliner

Dear Bill,
It was great to see you and everyone in Sicily.

I was delighted to see the photos of Janolus mirabilis on your forum. Additional specimens have come from Midway Atoll in the outer Hawaiian Islands and Cory Pittman has recently found this species on the high Hawaiian Island of Maui. It is a very bizarre species, to say the least. Some people have suggested that the missing cerata that were originally described were the result of damage to the Japanese specimens. It is comforting to know that all the specimens from all localities have this unusual arrangement of cerata.

All the best,


Janolus mirabilis
