ERMS note details

Bouchet (1984) considers that, if the description of Elysia fezi is correct, it should be considered as valid, even though it has not been collected again. If so, it would be the largest Mediterranean species of Elysia (44 mm), characterised by having radular teeth with a tricuspid anterior edge. After its description, this species has not been collected, although the opisthobranch populations of its type locality, Cubellas, have been very frequently sampled by several local experts during more than twenty years, one of them (Ballesteros) co-author of the Iberian checklist (Cervera et al., 2004).
