Concerning message #19335:

Dear Bill and Ken,
This reminds me of Spurilla australis, or the S. major you identified for Takako and Stephen in message #9201.

Just a thought.

Thanks Phil,
Many of the Aeolidiidae have this sort of 'look'. What make this animal so distinctive is the very elongate body and the yellow transverse bands on the foot. Bands on the foot like this remind me of Cerberilla ambonensis, which it clearly is not, but I can't recall another aeolid with similar bands.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
