Ascidians collected in Tanzania
Ascidians were collected in Tanzania in January 1996 by SCUBA diving. Among 31 species reported here, nine are new. Several species were also recently collected in Mozambique. Full descriptions are given with figures and colour plates. The present collection of Tanzanian ascidians significantly increases the number of species known in the tropical western Indian Ocean, and enlarges the range of other ascidians previously unrecorded from the Indian Ocean.
