Dendronotus cf. frondosus
- East Coast, Nth America (Ascanius, 1774)

Family: Dendronotidae

I have placed a number of photos of Dendronotus from the east coast of North America. It is possible that they are all colour varieties of Dendronotus frondosus but as is discussed in the messages it will probably require a better understanding of the local fauna before these animals can be identified from photographs.

Note added 30 Jan 2002: Since receiving Chad Sisson's message I have moved two messages from this page to the D. frondosus page.
