Discodoris evelinae? from Colombia

October 16, 2000
From: Phanor Montoya

Dear Bill:

I think this nudibranch is Discodoris evelinae. It was collected from Santa Marta, Colombia. I'm sending you photos of what I think are an adult (UPPER) and a juvenile (LOWER). Collected under rocks. The animals are brown or reddish. The body is papillate. They all have six gills.

With regards,
Phanor Montoya

Dear Phanor,
It certainly looks like a Discodoris but let's see what people who know the Caribbean fauna think.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
