Observations on Hexabranchus

from the Australian Great Barrier Reef

(Gastropoda : Opisthobranchia)


Zoology Department, University of Bristol, United Kingdom

(2 Text figures)


THE SWIMMING DISPLAY of Hexabranchus is one of the most splendid sights a malacologist may hope for. Despite the interest this has aroused there are great gaps in our knowledge of the genus. The normal diet is unknown, for instance, and the taxonomic situation is very confused, with dozens of proposed species. In order to help towards the solution of these problems, the present paper contains a description of the external features and anatomy of Australian specimens, together with notes on the gut contents and the swimming behaviour. These have been compared with observations on Hexabranchus by Morton (1964: Australia), GoHar & Sotiman (1963: Red Sea), ViceNTE (1963: Madagascar) and Epmunps (1968: Tanzania ). A suggested synonymy concludes the paper.

Miss J. A. Langhorne prepared the drawings for pub- lication.


Alive: One specimen, length 21 cm, creeping over coral sand near the reef crest at Heron Island, Capricorn Group, Australian Great Barrier Reef, June 1968. The specimen weighed 334 gr, and the pH of the skin was neutral.

Preserved: Several specimens in the collections of the Queensland Museum and of Miss Isobel Bennett of the University of Sydney.

Other Material: Kodachromes from life of Great Barrier

Reef individuals, kindly given by Mr. D. Henderson and by Dr. L. Harris.


A. External Features (Figures 1 and 2)

The basic colour of the body was rich dark red, with

irregular pale mottling. The rhinophoral tentacles were red-brown; the rims of the rudimentary pallial sheaths were bright red, with pale radiating markings. The pedal sole was paler in colour than the rest of the body. The oral tentacles took the form of a pair of flattened lobes (Figure 2C), with frilled edges. The gills, 7 in number, were ample and tripinnate, each being retractile into a separate pallial pit (7.¢e. phanerobranchiate). The gills twitched continuously. Within the ring of gills lay the conspicuous white anal papilla and the nephroproct (Fig- ure 2B).

The colour pattern described above is that which can be seen in the creeping animal. If alarmed, however, the mantle edges are spread out and the animal takes on a vivid aspect, in marked contrast to the well camouflaged resting stage. The unrolling of the mantle margins exhib- its the white edges and brilliant purple sub-marginal zones, observable in both dorsal and ventral views. In the dorsal view can be seen an additional feature, where bril- liant red radial streaks penetrate the purple zones. There are also approximately bilaterally symmetrical slightly embossed patches of pink surrounding bright red spots; these are partially concealed when the animal is creeping (Figure 2A).

B. Swimming Behaviour

In swimming, the enrolled mantle skirt is spread out, dilated, and strong locomotor waves are propagated rear- wards from the anterior pallial margin. The waves are synchronous on the two sides of the body, and each wave takes about 4 seconds to travel its course. ‘Two waves are usually in progress along the sides of the body at any moment. At the same time, the body undergoes great dorso-ventral flexions, a full cycle of activity occupying about 4 seconds, Swimming may continue for many min- utes, and it is probable that this is more than a simple escape reaction. Certainly, a brilliant display of colour accompanies the unrolling of the mantle edge, and it may be that swimming here is the behavioural component of an aposematic or warning display. While swimming, the lateral edges of the foot are brought together in order to conceal the sole and the rhinophores are held back against the dorsal mantle.

C. Anatomy

The central nervous system was orange-pink in colour and pustulose like that of a pleurobranchomorph. The blood-gland (of uncertain function) was large and dark red, overlying the pallial nerves behind the nerve ring. A conspicuous pear-shaped gastric caecum was present. The penis was extremely large, 3 cm or more in preservative. The penial sheath was helically coiled around the narrow vas deferens. The penis was unarmed.

The jaws were dark brown, lying one on each side of the oral canal. They exhibited antero-posterior wrinkles and were composed of minute rods of chitin. The radular for- mula was 48 X 91 -0-91. This is somewhat different from Red Sea specimens (40 X 60:0-60 to 60 X 78:0-78, according to GoHar « Soimman, 1963). The hooked simple teeth lacked subsidiary denticulations of any kind.

D. Diet

The hindgut was filled with fragments of greenish material which contained minute calcareous spicules. Dr. P. Kott kindly identified these remains as the ascidian Didemnum moseleyi Herdman. This is the first record of

such a diet for Hexabranchus. Other authors have identi- fied the gut contents as sponges (Younc, 1969), or as foraminiferans, worm-tubes, and gastropod and echino- derm shells (EaLEs, 1938).


Many species of Hexabranchus have been proposed, but as long ago as 1909, Exior stated that “It may be doubted whether the species of Hexabranchus are for the most part more than colour varieties”. In the following year, this distinguished authority again made it clear that he doubted the validity of nearly all the claimed specific divisions (Euiot, 1910). Since that time, OsTERGAARD (1955) and Marcus & Marcus (1962) have added new proposed species of Hexabranchus but without seriously attempting to distinguish their specimens from previous described species. Indeed, apart from a minor difference in radular morphology, the only important feature distin- guishing H. morsomus Marcus & Marcus, 1962, from older described forms is the fact that it came from the Virgin Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, whereas other rec- ords had been exclusively from the Indo-Pacific. Only in GoHar & SOLIMAN’s (1963) paper is there an attempt to describe and illustrate the variations which may occur in the colour patterns within a particular sea-area. Their results support Eliot’s view that there may be only one valid species of Hexabranchus. Eymunps (1968) claimed to have detected differences in the swimming behaviour of Tanzanian specimens compared with published accounts of Australian material (Morton, 1964), but his illus- trations do not support this contention. His plate 1 (1) shows two waves on the mantle margin on each side, despite his assertion in the text of his paper that only one is present in Tanzanian material. There are thus no sub- stantial differences either in behaviour or colouration in Hexabranchus recorded from localities all over the Indo- Pacific Basin. The published records probably all refer to a single species. The name Doris sanguinea Riippell & Leuckart, 1828, appears to have priority.
