Colour variation in Noumea haliclona

June 8, 2000
From: Bill Rudman.

I have just added four pages on Noumea haliclona and its regional colour forms. This interesting southeastern Australian endemic has cryptic colour forms matching the colour of its food sponges, in the southern part of its range, but a red-spotted white form in the north, matching the red-spotted chromodorids endemic to that region.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
