Cratena scintilla

Ortea & Moro, 1998


Marlon Delgado Cratena peregrina RN/ Brasil

Vinicius Padula Much probably the Brazilian specimens are not coespecific to the eastern Atlantic-Mediterranean ones. They are in general smaller and without the blue pigment in the cerata.

João Pedro Silva And there are more Cratena other than C. peregrina. Cratena scintilla, for instance from W Africa (Cape Verde, S. Tomé e Píncipe).
