Hesione splendida Savigny in Lamarck, 1818 

Hesione pantherina  Risso, 1826 | Hesione splendida  Savigny in Lamarck, 1818

Notes

Hesione  species display a high colour variability and it is currently unknown whether these are colour morphs of the same species or belong to different species ( Mikac 2015, Jimi et al. 2017). For this reason, the status of Hesione pantherina  , Hesione splendida  and similar species is still unclear; here we follow the opinion of F. Pleijel (pers. comm. to Mikac 2015) and list occurrences of Hesione pantherina  under Hesione splendida  .
