Dear Eddy,

It's nice to get photos of this species from the Egyptian Red Sea as Gohar & Aboul-Ela (1957) published some interesting work on this species and two very similarly coloured species from that part of the world. They described a new species,  Risbecia ghardaqana which has remained a bit of a puzzle since then [see my message #9625]. If you have any photos of an animal similar to C. annulata but lacking the purple rings, it would be nice to see it.

• Gohar, H. A. F., & I. A. Aboul-Ela. 1957a. The development of three chromodorids (with the description of a new species). Publications of the Marine Biological Station, Al-Ghardaqa, Egypt, 9: 203-228, pls. 1-5.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
