Opisthobranchiate Mollusca from Ghana: Facelinidae
Journal of Conchology
Descriptions are given of twelve species of nudibranch aeolid from Ghana belonging to the family Facelinidae. Two of the species are new: Cratena tema n. sp., and Godiva brunnea n. sp., while three more, Facelinidae species A, B and C, appear to be currently undescribed species. Many of the twelve species are capable of living among the fouling community in harbours and on boat hulls; as a consequence several of these have an amphiatlantic geographical range while one species, Godiva quadricolor, also occurs widely in the Indian Ocean.
