Gary Cobb Here is Flabellina bicolor we find here on the Sunshine Coast Mooloolaba Queensland Australia. 30 mm

Erwin Koehler I think this one look like the picture of Flabellina macassarana in IPN,

Gary Cobb Erwin what makes you think this is Flabellina macassarana??

Erwin Koehler I do NOT think this is F. macassarana, I hit the Enter button too early and the EDIT did not work, the full text I wanted to write: I think this one looks like the picture of Flabellina macassarana in IPN at page 352, though none of them fits the description, e.g. the picture in IPN is of something else, not of F. macassarana, look here: http://www.philippine-sea-slugs.com/Nudibranchia/Dexiarchia/Flabellina_macassarana_03.htm

Gary Cobb Thank you Erwin. It happens to everyone. I am reexamining the Flabellina bicolor photos we have and want to try to see without any doubt the real differences between the 2 species. You see many photos of both species with paddle shaped oral tentacles. You see both species with defused orange rings and sharp rings at the ends of the cerata. You see both species with opaque white bodies and transparent bodies. Could they be the same species??? Will get back.
