Jorunna onubensis

Cervera, Garcia-Gomez & Garcia, 1986


Cláudio Brandão This is a unknow (yet) species that came on a plankton net, meant to catch crab larvae. It was photographed by me and then released again to the same location it was caught! =) João Pedro Silva, any hint on the species?

João Pedro Silva Jorunna tomentosa?

Cláudio Brandão Do you think? I really though it was not like J. tomentosa! :$

Cláudio Brandão Ok, my bad.. It is J. tomentosa (not sure how I missed it)! Another species in Ria de Aveiro! =)

João Pedro Silva This one was shot at the end of a dive we both did in Peniche: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/5500086901/ It could also be Jorunna onubensis, although they're hard to distinguish.
