Nanuca sebastiani

Er. Marcus, 1957


Alvaro Borba Nanuca sebastiani Francês beach - Alagoa, Northeast Brazil Probably one of the most abundant species observed in the Francês beach. I believe we have a strong relationship with the large amount of this species mainly hydrozoa photo.

Vinicius Padula For sure, they eat the hydrozoans ;) This species is amazing!

Alvaro Borba Yes! Awesome!!

Vinicius Padula Nanuca sebastiani from Cabo Frio, southeastern Brazil. Does color matter?

Ana Karla Araújo I think it does :p

Vinicius Padula In some cases, yes, in other...no.

Bernard Picton More often it does in my experience. Difficult when they are from different geographical areas though...

Ana Karla Araújo Yes yes, in some cases =)

João Paulo Cauduro Filho Nice Photo my friend!!! Congratulation!!!

Lucas CerCur I like this kind of questions...

Lucas CerCur Material from all areas from which Nanuca sebastiani has been recorded need to be compared.

Alvaro Borba Great question! I think like you... Some times yes and some times no :P

Lucas CerCur Right!

Lucas CerCur But...from a point of view, it is "funny" that the meaning of the color was not always the same.

Gary Cobb In regards to Aeolids cerata colour can very depending on what the animal eats. Body colour a different matter. In my experience body colour does matter.

Gary Cobb These colour variations are nice for the new App. In the Caribbean book Jeff presents a darker version. The App I am working on will show major colour variations.

Lucas CerCur Aeolids cerata can have an structural coloration and a dietary coloration. Structural coloration is less variable that the dietary.

Lucas CerCur Moreover, species with a wide geographic range can shown structural coloration variability also.

Lucas CerCur Finally, strutural coloration variability can exist between juveniles and adulds. But not in all especies.

Gary Cobb Thank you for this Lucas!

Gary Cobb It's a great thing to have taxonomists in the groups actively participating...a big thanks go out to all of you!

Yuri Hooker bellisimo!
