“The Cryptic Diversity in Aplysia parvula.”
Yumiko Togawa, Rie Nakano, Tomoyuki Nakano.

Aplysia parvula is a small-sized species in the group of sea hare. The species is known to have a cosmopolitan distribution. The color of their body, tentacles, foot, tale and white spots are extremely variable. The molecular analyses clearly show that several species are concealed under the name Aplysia parvula.
