Dear Dr Rudman,
Here are two photos of Aldisa smaragdina Ortea, Perez & Llera, 1982. The specimen has been identified by Dr. Ángel Valdés.
This specimen was collected in August, 1999 at the Bay of Algeciras (Strait of Gibraltar, southern Spain) at 3 - 8 m. depth. Size: 15 – 20 mm. Place: Las Lajas Reef
email@example.comSánchez, A., 2001 (Nov 1) Aldisa smaragdina from Mediterranean Sea. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/5589
NOTE: See Luis Sanchez Tocino's message identifying this as A. banyulensis.
Can anyone give some advice on identifying the Mediterranean species of Aldisa? I asked this question some time ago [see top of page] but have had no suggestions. For example how does A. smaragdina differ from Pruvot-Fol's A. binotata?
