Phidiana lynceus from Brasil

Dear friends,

This species isn't as abundant here as Dondice cf. occidentalis but it too was collected in the same swamp area covered with mangroves to 10-12 m in depth.

It has a light red band on the rhinophores and oral tentacles; a white median line down the body; and white tip to the cerata. I think that is like specimen of Anne Dupont.
Best Regards!
