NOTE: Facelina coronata is a synonym of Facelina auriculata. See Bernard Picton's message. Until 30 August 2001 the name F. coronata was used on the Forum.

Hallo Xavier,
In addition to a reply that I send on 09 June 1999:

Here is a picture of a Facelina coronata. This picture was made in April at the Zeelandbrug, Oosterschelde, the Netherlands.

I assume that you saw this species.

Dear Peter,
Now that I have returned from Sicily I have been going through the recent messages.
Thanks for your messages on Xavier's 'mystery'. Any other photos and observations on nudibranchs from your part of the world would be very welcome.
best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
