Abstract:

This paper gives results of a 2-year study of the ascoglossan opisthobranch, Oxynoe antillarum Mörch. The animals were collected from the alga Caulerpa racemosa, counted, and measured on a monthly basis for a period of 2 years. The total number of Oxynoe found during each month is graphed; the distribution of the population by size is also plotted. The animals and spawn are described and illustrated. Notes on the Ascoglossa-Caulerpa association in Puerto Rico are included. Autotomy and regeneration in O. antillarum are described for the first time.
