Abstract

A tiny nudibranch mollusc collected from the shallow waters of the Palk Bay in the vicinity of Mandapam has been described to a new species of Favorinus, viz., F. argentimaculatus of the family Favorinidae. The species differs from the members of the genus in the presence of silvery spots all over the integument and also in the general arrangement of the cerata. Its structure, feeding habits, spawn, early F development, and h a 1 and post-larval stages have been described.
