Colour change in Notodoris gardineri

December 5, 2002
From: Julie Marshall

Dear Bill,
Following your comments and Richard Willan’s message about the change in the colouration of the rhinophores of Notodoris gardineri from black to yellow I am attaching a photo of the animal we called Notodoris sp. 1 in Marshall and Willan, (1999). It was 14mm in size and found at a depth of 12m at Heron Island on the sponge, Pericharax heteroraphis.
Best wishes,
Julie Marshall

Thanks Julie,
I think the Forum is particularly good at pulling together little bits of information like this to make an interesting whole.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
