Concerning message #21618:

Dear Dr.Bill,
Here are three photos we thought were Jorunna parva. The water temperature of a Saipan island is high maybe 28 - 30 degree C but, Ms.Teresa Zuberbühler said, "perhaps they prefer colder water" in her message. In fact I don't know anything about it because' I saw this animal first time in Saipan.

Locality: LauLau Beach, 8m, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, Pacific Ocean, 15 September 2008, under the dead coral with red sponge. Length: 10mm. Photographer: Yuji Fujie.

Would you tell us your opinion, please ?
Best regards,
Yuji

Dear Yuji,

Yes I agree your animal is the one I have been calling Jorunna parva, and I suspect it is the same as Jorunna sp. 2 which would give it a very wide distribution in the tropical to warm temperate Indo-West Pacific.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
