Aegires sp. 01  Genus: Lovén, 1844

Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Aegires sp. 01 is characterized by its pinkish background colour with large rounded tubercles, and by the pinkish rhinophores which have white tips, followed by a yellow and a dark pink ring. The tips of the extrabranchial lobes are globular and of orange colour.
I think the specimens of the pictures #1, #2, and #5 are colour variants, with whitish-pink tips of the extrabranchial lobes.
Thanks for identification of this specimen to Dr. Juan Lucas Cervera Currado
This species is as Aegires sp. 1 in IPN at page 144, it was posted on 16 April 2004 at these websites as Aegires sp. A  Genus: Lovén, 1844,
and changed on 16 July 2011 into Aegires sp. 01  Genus: Lovén, 1844.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
