Elysia subornata from Belize

Hi Bill:
Another Elysia from Belize, photographed by Jeff Hamann. We identified this as Elysia subornata, which I believe agrees with Redfern (2002). This specimen has a damaged left mantle, but never the less looks quite happy. I collected the specimen on a red filamentous algae in the mangroves at Lark Cay.

Dear Dave,
I would agree this is most probably E. subornata. Kathe should be able to confirm this for us.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
