Lobiger souverbii from Caribbean

November 9, 2001
From: Bill Rudman

As background for the on-going discussion on Lobiger viridis here is some information on the Caribbean species Lobiger souverbii.

PHOTO: A copy of Fischer's illustration of Lobiger souverbii from Pilsbry, 1896: Pl. 10. figs 39, 42.

In Fischer's original description only 2 parapodial flaps were illustrated but this is based on a specimen in which 2 flaps have been autotomised. This species has crenulations along the edge of the parapodial flaps rather than secondary branches.
