status

 

Palpiphitime lobifera ( Oug, 1978)   ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 )

Material examined: Northern North Atlantic, coastal Skagerrak, 58 ° 53.1 ’ N; 11 ° 06.4’ E. Specimens recovered from minke whale bones in experimental aquarium tanks.

Remarks: The most abundant dorvilleid on the whale bones is Palpiphitime lobifera   . We here include a live photo of the species ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 ) to show the presence of eyes, which were not reported in the original description ( Oug 1978). The eyes are easily visible on live animals, but may be difficult to see in preserved specimens.
