Dolabrifera brazieri from Lord Howe Island

April 26, 2003
From: W.B. Rudman

Here is a photo record from Ian Hutton of Dolabrifera brazieri from Neds Beach, Lord Howe Island.

The mottled colour pattern of browns, pinks and greens match the colour of the rock platform on which it lives. The lower photo, of the openings into the mantle cavity also show the partially retracted white filaments at the tip of each tubercle.
