Numerous colonies of Eudistoma santamariae, new species, were collected during several years from Sal Island. Their appearance in life is peculiar, with naked purple lobes erect above an extended layer of branched stolons embedded with sand and arranged in a web. The larva of this ascidian has a distinctive pigmentation. This new species is compared with other sandy Eudistoma from the west African coast.
