Cyerce habanensis

Ortea & Templado, 1988


Colin Redfern A 10mm specimen of Cyerce habanensis Ortea & Templado, 1989 from Abaco, Bahamas, where it is found exclusively on Halimeda opuntia. Species synonymized under Cyerce antillensis by Vald├ęs et al. (2006), but I believe it to be distinct.

Anne Diver Colin, I will check my Bahama photos of Cyerce antillensis and see if I have a match to your guy...
