A very small juvenile individual.
Yes, another Pleurobranchus grandis
. Beautiful animal.
That certainly looks like Pleurobranchus grandis
. I'm glad to see it at Kosrae. I have not yet found it in the Marshalls, but now I know I should look harder.
This individual is typical of the dark colour form of this species.
This individual is typical of the pale colour form of this species.
This individual displays an unusual colour pattern with a broad white marginal band. However the arrangement of the pustules on the mantle (one large pustule surrounded by a ring of 6 smaller pustules) and large exhalant ‘siphon’ at the rear when it is crawling actively are characteristic of Pleurobranchus grandis
. Like most species of Pleurobranchus, it is a nocturnal species.
