Een nieuwe wormslak Petaloconchus spec. voor Caribisch Nederland

Coral reef surveys in 2021 at the leeward side of Curacao (Duthc Caribbean) yielded the discoery of a new worm snail for the Atlantic. With the help of photographs taken during elarlier surveys, its presence on Curacao could be traced back to 2014 and on Bonaire to 2019.  The species cannot be Petaloconchus varians because that worm builds reefs in shallow waters.
