Palio dubia? from Norway

July 10, 2003
From: Robert Borzymek

Dear Bill,
I took these photos at Lofoten Island in Norway, inside the Arctic Circle. It was at about 30 meters. I saw them only twice in different dive sites in Lofoten during my two weeks diving trip. Could you please help my identify them.

Best regards
Robert Borzymek

Dear Robert,
I suspect these are Palio dubia but the one in the lower photo seems to be damaged posteriorly. I could be quite wrong so lets see what some of our colleagues from the cold north have to say
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
