Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
DescriptionThe cerata in this species are normally filled with red-coloured digestive gland, but green individuals (var. smaragdina) are found on occasions. The body is translucent white, with patches of white pigment at the tips of the rhinophores, oral tentacles and tail and thin rings of white pigment at the tips of the cerata. The anus is beneath the gap between the second and third bunches of cerata. A small species, reaching 12mm to 15mm at maturity. Easily confused with juveniles of other Coryphella species, but the presence of internal opaque white globules of mature ovotestis in animals of 10-12mm is a good identifying feature.
