Just a question but wouldn't a hybrid of a species mean that the parent species were actually the same species? I have always been taught that separate species are defined as not being able to mate with any organisms other than ones of the same species. If these certain cypraea are mating with other species then are they actually members of different species or the same species? I am curious to know. Sarah

ps think I have said species enough ok one more species.
