Dear Dr. Rudman,
This 9mm Tyrinna evelinae was found in Playa Mismaloya, Bahia de Banderas, Pacific Coast of Mexico at 17 feet of depth under a rock on April 22nd.
I have so far found 3 more: in Islas Marietas (north of the Bay) and Chimo (south of the Bay) and they were not under rocks, but crawling on the walls. Some individuals show yellow-brownish blotches on their bodies [see separate message], which I have seen make them look like a piece of broken shell (well, that is my appreciation anyways).

Thanks for these photos. This species has a wide distribution from Brazil to the Caribbean, Ghana and the Pacific coast of central America. It will be interesting when you get some information on its biology as we know very little about the gemus Tyrinna.
