Here is a photo of Berghia verrucicornis from the Mediterranean coast of France. I saw many specimens of this species in Arcachon Basin, in Senegal and now in the Mediterranean. And all of them seem to be completely identical externally.
Locality: 'La digue', Port-Leucate , 3 m, France, Mediterranean, 24 June 2006. Length: 16mm. Photographer: Marina Poddubetskaia Ossokine.
All the best,

Thanks you so much - at last a good photo of a 'typical' Berghia verrucicornis from the Mediterranean, where it was first described from. I really have no excuse now for not preparing a proper Fact Sheet for this species. As I have discussed before, Aeolidella stephanieae, the US aquarium animal which for so long was misidentified as B. verrucicornis, is obviously quite different.
I have included a close-up alongside as it shows the orange markings on the body as found in Trinchese's old paintings [message #3918 ]
