Lightbulb Tunicate - Clavelina dellavallei In properly labeling species I have from other trips in my Flickr I jumped into this tunicate that we saw during a dive in Ustica, Italy  (2010). I have some spottings from that trip in JungleDragon but it seems I don't have this one, at least I can't find it by googling my username and Italy or unidentified. So I guess I did not add it at the time because I had no ID for it and now I do so there it is, one new mediterranean tunicate species :-) Clavelina dellavallei,Geotagged,Italy,Light Bulb Tunicate,Spring Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro
