Goniodoris castanea from the Netherlands

From: Peter H. van Bragt

Hallo Bill

Please link these data and images to the records of the Netherlands.

Enclosed you will find some images of Goniodoris castanea and its spawn. All photographs were made in the Oosterschelde, the Netherlands, at various places in September 1999 and January 2000.T his nudi typically feeds here on Botryllus schlosseri (the purple/black colony forming tunicates, UPPER RIGHT).

In January 2000 we found a few colonies of Botrylloides leachi, which was then new to our tunicate fauna list. And to our suprise we also found a specimen of G. castanea feeding on these small red tunicates (LOWER RIGHT).

best regards
Peter H. van Bragt

Dear Peter,
Glad to get your message on Goniodoris castanea and the other species which I will add over the next few days. Once I have them all posted I will update the Netherlands page.
Best wishes,
