Verconia sp. 07

Author: Undescribed

Order: Nudibranchia  Family: Chromodorididae

Maximum Size: 10 mm

Sightings: Sunshine Coast, Whitsundays


Previously known on this website as Thorunna sp. 06. (Changed April 2023)

A second specimen of this species was recorded at Manta Reef, Holbourne Island, 06/04/2023 (Original recording at Terry’s Delight, Sunshine Coast on 27/7/18). A review of those photos revealed significant mantle gland formations and together with the observation that it did not vibrate its gills when moving, leads us to believe that the genus Verconia is more appropriate. (We will have to wait until the animal is formally described to find out which is correct.)
