Flabellina affinis

Flabellina affinis is a species of sea slug, an aolid nudibranch, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Flabellinidae.

Contents

Description

The species can grow to a length of 50 mm . It feeds primarily on species of Eudendrium, a very common hydroid genus in the Mediterranean Sea.

Flabellina affinis is often confused with Flabellina ischitana, but can be distinguished as follows:

  • Flabellina affinis: the digestive gland is not visible as the area beneath the subapical white ring is opaque
  • Flabellina ischitana: the ceratal surface has not purple-violet colouration and is translucent

Distribution

This species is found in depths to 50 m in European waters along Portugal and Spain, in the Mediterraneran Sea along Greece, in the Atlantic Ocean from Portugal to Ghana and along the Canaries
