Hi Bill,

We found and identified Phidiana lynceus in a hypersaline lagoon called Laguna de la Restinga on Margarita Island, Venezuela.
I would like to send you the pictures of the specimen so you can confirm the identification

many thanks for your help! GOOD work!

Locality: Laguna de la Restinga, Margarita Island, Nueva Esparta, Venezuela, Caribbean. Depth: 5 m. December 2004. Photographer: Jesus Henrique Hernandéz.

Dear Sylvia,
Phidiana lynceus seems to be quite variable in colour, but the white median line down the back and the white line on each side of the body seem quite distinctive.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
