Rubramoena sp.

Rubramoena sp. @ Cala Margarida 16-07-2016 by Enric Madrenas

Initially classified as Rubramoena amoena, it does not conform to species description, it is probably a new species. Here we have two variants, one with a white dorsal band, found on the Spanish Costa Brava, and another without this dorsal band found in Southern Italy and in Malta. Specimens from the Adriatic sea seem to be of both variants.

Known georeferenced records of the species: Rubramoena sp.
