Description

We found a dozen of these, up to 75 mm long, and with their egg ribbons, under intertidal cobbles in the outlet of the shallow lagoon backing Playa Pichilingue. The 6th image is of the site, taken in Feb 2020, when I returned and searched for but did not find any C. bramale.

These specimens represent the first record of this Panamic species from the the Sea of Cortez and the Baja California peninsula. It was not recorded by Orso Angulo-Campillo during his four year survey of opisthobranchs from Baja California Sur, including the La Paz area (Vita Malacologia 3: 43-50, 2005).

We documented the occurrence of C. bramale here in Goddard et al. (2018, Proceed. Calif. Acad. Sci. 65: 107-131, p. 112).

Found on encrusting bryozoan (6th image) on the underside of a cobble in mid-intertidal pool.

The shape of dorsal tubercles (with spicules not protruding through their ends) and the presence of a large, whitish glandular tubercle behind of the gills (see 2nd, 4th & 5th images) seem to match Atalodoris jannae, but as far as I know that species is known only from the N. Pacific?!

I did not notice the posterior white tubercle in the field when I took these images, figured the dorid was probably Onchidoris muricata and did not think of collecting it, but now think I need to return to the pool where I found it, and try to relocate it...
