Palio nothus from Denmark

Hallo Bill,

Enclosed you will find images of Palio nothus that I have recently found in Denmark

This specimen with its spawn was found at the east coast of Denmark, near Kolding in the Spring of 2000.

Palio nothus is very rare in the Netherlands. So far it has only been recorded to be found seven times. I have not seen this one myself yet on the Dutch coast.

Please add this image also to the list of Dutch records so that our nudi-spotters may recognize it if they find one in the Netherlands again.

Best regards

Thanks Peter,
I am unfamiliar with this species. Is this a 'typical' colour form? It looks a bit different from most of the illustrations I have seen with descriptions of a greenish background colour.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
