Dear Bill,
Concerning Gianni Neto's Italian record of Syphonota geographica, Gianni has checked his archive, here is his reply: "The photo has been made in the Strait of Messina two years ago in September ... After that time I do not have more of them found again."
By the way, Gianni has excellent uw-shots at his website http://digilander.iol.it/netofotosub
Cheers,
Erwin

Thanks Erwin & Gianni,
It is indeed an interesting observation. If anyone else has seen this animal in the Mediterranean or knows of a published report of it being found there, I would be very pleased to hear of it
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
