Abstract
    After more than forty years of intensive observation on the coast of Normandy and Brittany in France a greenish and slightly orange coloured reticulated specimen has been found at Green Island, (Jersey, Channel Islands) for the first time. This unusual colour may be caused by the different habitat on algae instead of the underside of stones and valves of empty shells.
