I came across these photos I took of Haminoea zelandiae many years ago. They show the range of colour variation from pale translucent brown to almost black. Unfortunately I wasn't very diligent in labelling slides in those days so I have no details on these photos other than that they would have been from somewhere in Auckland, New Zealand in 1969 or 1970 when I was studying their biology and comparative anatomy.
