Breedy & Guzman, 2016

Very special thanks for the first photo of Muricea subtilis to Dr.Odalisca Breedy (University of Costa Rica and Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama.
Dr. Breedy ahs taken several photos of this new gorgonian coral along the north and central Pacific coast, from Santa Elena Bay to the Nicoya Gulf, Costa Rica in a depth of 30 to 53 meters.

Colour: Whitish to pale yellow.
Habitat: Mud-sandy substrate along the outer part of Nicoya Gulf, together with other octocoral species such as Muricea fruticosa Verrill, 1869; Pacifigorgia senta Breedy & Guzman, 2003

Some branches of Muricea subtilis were devoid of polyps, probably eaten by worms.
