Diadumene luciae

(Verrill, 1898)


Andy Horton I hope you will know our Seasearch Guide to Anemones and Corals of Britain and Ireland. We have more or less run out of stock and are working on a second edition. I am trying to sort out the changes in taxonomy but we also want to include new images as digital photography has moved on so far since the first edition. There are a number of species which there seem to be few, if any records of, and a number of them are shallow water species. It occurred to me that you or members of the BMLSS might be in a position to help with images or at least tell me where they can be found and I wondered if you can help by publicising this request. The species we are particularly interested in are: Epizoanthus incrustans (sand/gravel habitat) Stomphia coccinea Anthopleura thallia (rock pools/SW) Aiptaisiogeton pellucidus (tiny, shallow, SW) Haliplanella lineata (harbours, rock pools) other name Diadumene luciae Anemonactis mazeli (deep water) Hacampoides elongatus/abyssorum Cataphellia brodricii Caryophyllia inornata Sphenotrochus andrewianus (free living coral) Hoplangia durotrix Anybody who supplies images we use will get a free copy of the book and the picture acknowledged of course. I hope you can help and look forward to hearing from you Chris Wood National Seasearch Coordinator
