Jorunna parva? from Japan

November 15, 2003
From: Yukari Sato


Hello Dr.Rudman,
I have found this animal at Izu, Japan. I suspect this is maybe Jorunna parva. Could you confirm this?

Date: 21 May 2003
Depth: 20m
Size: approx.12mm-15mm
Location: Tago, Suruga bay, west coast of Izu peninsula, Japan

Best regards,
Yukari Sato

Dear Yukari,
This could quite possibly be a pale form of J. parva but as I have discussed elsewhere, it is possible that Jorunna sp. 2 is the same species and there are colour forms on that page which match your animal identically. We still have a lot to learn about this group of species before we can be sure of their identity
Best wishes
Bill Rudman
