Hi folks
re your Polydorella - according to T. Britayev it may be either P. smurovi or P. cf. davidovi (P. davidovi was described from Vietnam), or maybe another closely related, undescribed species, so next time please pick up a few specimens !!!
BUT it is a Polydorella sp.
cheers

I'm sure Egyptian customs would love me bring those back in a vial of gin! Alex

Actually, Baccardi 151 white rum is the preservative of choice. Really! When working in the Caribbean on a biodiverisity survey we couldn't get ethyl alcohol so on the first day of each field season the guys would go over to Tortola & buy 20 cases of 151. It's 70 percent, clear so it doesn't discolor the specimens, and suitable for DNA samples. I'm sure Egyptian customs would understand.....
