Distribution of Elysia subornata

February 9, 2003
From: Thierry Thibaut

Dear Bill,
There is a small mistake concerning the distribution of Elysia subornata Verrill 1901. This species does not live in the Mediterranean Sea. The distribution is :Florida (the Keys), the Carribean, Brazil. This species is actually studied as a potential control agent against the introduced and invasive Caulerpa in the Mediterranean (Caulerpa taxifolia and Caulerpa racemosa var. occidentalis) but all the experiments are done far from the Sea and no release has been done into the Sea.
Congratulations for your website it's really excellent.
Thierry Thibaut


Dear Thierry,
I have followed your research work over the last few years with great interest, so I should have noticed I had the distribution incorrect myself. Thanks very much for letting me know. I am always grateful for being made aware of any errors.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
