PatriciaPi he estado leyendo sobre los Juniperus y creo que tienes razón aunque no se encontraba en la zona costera sino en el interior de la península ibérica. Si nos fijamos en los frutos y hojas concuerdan con la descripción de Juniperus macrocarpa. Gracias de nuevo.

Thank you, Hema. I was lucky to spot these two butterflies mating.

Congratulations, Eulalia, for this nomination. Pinna nobilis is not an attractive or beautiful species such as butterflies, birds, little mammals, etc, but it is important to raise awareness of the importance of its protection.

They are the largest mollusks in the Mediterranean sea; they filter large amounts of detritus and retain a high percentage of their organic matter.

They provide a surface that can be colonized by other species as you can see in Eulalia's photos (sea anemones and algae).

In the past buttons and other jewelry objets where made from the mother pearl of this bivalve. Besides in the antiquity, gloves where also made with the fibres (sea silk) which hold this mollusk to the bottom of the sea.

Great series of this little fish which is "cousin" to the seahorse. Its reproduction is similar to those. It's the male which carries the fertilized eggs in specialized pouches on its body (you can see it clearly in photo n. 4 of this series). The eggs mature in this pouch, and the young are expelled through a longitudinal slit in the front of the pouch.

Hema, thank you so much for ID. We'll continue searching for the species.

Great series of this species in extreme danger of extinction. This is the biggest mollusk in the Mediterranean sea where most of its population has died. https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10....

However in the coastal lagoon Mar Menor a number of them have been found alive! You can see them in Eulalia's photos.
