A New Species of Notaspidean of the Genus Pleurobranchus Cuvier, 1804 (Gastropoda, Opisthobranchia) from the Cape Verde Archipelago
Abstract:A new species of notaspidean, Pleurobranchus garciagomezi, is described from Ilha do Sal, Cape Verde Archipelago off the coast of West Africa. The color of the mantle with its conspicuous opaque white network, the shape of the shell and the anatomy of the reproductive system distinguish this species from all other Atlantic Pleurobranchus. A color plate of P. garciagomezi together with two other species of the genus is given to illustrate the distinctiveness of this species.
