I was going through old photos of Botrylloides recently when I noticed that I had overlooked another critters at Apollo Bay Harbour.
There was a FLATWORM. And I didn’t see it.
The flatworm belongs to the Cycloporus genus. It could be one of two species, but it is difficult to tell without a closer view. To tell them apart I would need photos of:
- median line
- type of pigmented spots.
Commonly found under rocks near compound ascidians.
I know who needs to go looking for ascidians soon!
