Reticulidia suzanneae from Thailand

May 24, 2002
From: David Behrens

Dear Bill:
Reticulidia sp 1 on the Forum has now been described as Reticulidia suzanneae Valdes & Behrens 2002. The attached photographs of the type specimens were taken by Mark Strickland, at Similan Island, Andaman Sea, Thailand in February, 2001. Specimens measured up to 70mm in length, and were collected on coral rubble bottom at a depth of 21m. This description adds a third species to the genus in the Indo-Pacific and a fourth worldwide.

Thanks for keeping the Forum up to date on new names. I am just posting a message from Bernard Picton today increasing this animal's distribution to the western side of the Indian Ocean.
