Species Account:

        I've not personally seen Eubranchus sp. 1 here in the waters of Okinawa's main island. Atsushi Ono has seen only the above featured animal as of May, 2007 and of course considers the species to be very rare in the Keramas.* Atsushi reports (pers. comm.) finding the above featured animal on the underside of a small stone in intertidal waters.


        * Keramas = the Kerama Islands Group, located 30 ~ 40 kilometers west of the Okinawa capitol, Naha.
