Great Photo & Find Mark!


This comes from another non-expert, but the "Caribbean Sea Slugs" by Angel
Valdez et al published in 2006, page 38, shows this specimen as Chelidonura
cubana and lists its geographic range as the Cayman Islands and Cuba.  I'm
sure the experts would like to hear that its geographic range is now
extended to Curacao.  Good work! J
