Jorunna sp. 2.
UPPER: Kurnell, Botany Bay, NSW, May 1986, 21 mm long. Inset showing black band on posterior foot of animal from Green Point, Camp Cove, Sydney, 6m, October 1982.
LOWER: A, Long Reef, Sydney, March 1980, 17mm long. B, Coffs Harbour region, northern New South Wales, Dec 1990, 15mm long. C, juvenile Lizard Is., North Queensland, June 1979, 11mm long. PHOTOS: Bill Rudman.
Usually yellow with black spots, this unnamed species appears to be widespread throughout the Indo-West Pacific. In some cases it can have a white background colour, and sometimes the black patches are replaced by scattered black caryophyllidia all over the mantle. It differs from Jorunna funebris in radular morphology and in having many more gills, and a large black spot or line on the posterior tip of the foot.
Compare also with Jorunna pardus from California and Jorunna parva from Japan.Authorship details
