Dear Bill,

Here is an orange Verconia verconis I saw at Edithburgh, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia, a couple of weeks ago. Thought you might be interested.

Thanks Stuart,
Your photo fills a gap in the colour variation I have on display. The white glands at the tips of the mantle papillae [see inset] are very obvious in your photo.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
