Info

Syphonota geographica, (A. Adams & Reeve, 1850)

Syphonota geographica is the only species within this genus Syphonota.This sea hare differs from the other Aplysiidae genera, through the position of the rhinophores, which are further back.The body colour is whitish to green, with brown specks and a network of white lines,hence Syphonota the name 'geographica'.Syphonota geographica lives in shallow water on sandy bottom.

Syphonota geographica feeds on leaf shaped seaweeds and sea grasses.
