Chromodoris purpurea

(Risso in Guérin, 1831)


Jaime Romero "Chromodoris purpurea". Lanzarote-Canary Islands

João Pedro Silva Formerly Chromodoris, now 'Felimida' purpurea. I'm afraid there are no Chromodoris native to the Atlantic. http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=139142

David Serrano Chromodoris purpurea, Ensenada de Somió Gijón

Manuel Martínez Chacón Los géneros hypselodoris y chromodoris del Atlántico Oriental y Mediterráneo se han reinsertado a los géneros felimare y felimida según los últimos estudios moleculares de 2012. Esta especie se llamaría ahora Felimida purpurea.

David Serrano Ya vi los estudios, lo que pasa es que no logro acostumbrarme a los nombres nuevos

Manuel Martínez Chacón A mi me pasa lo mismo, y los nombres de los nuevos géneros me repatean... pero la ciencia es así de cabr...

João Pedro Silva E ainda vai haver mais mudanças nos próximos tempos :)

Manuel Martínez Chacón Eso, Joăo, tú da más animos, jejeje. De momento ya me se la historia de la F. babai.

João Pedro Silva E de Piseinotecus gaditanus = Flabellina confusa :) O problema é que ainda falta determinar se no final vai ficar Flabellina gaditana... :)

João Pedro Silva Another very common nudibranch species in this area. A 'Felimida' purpurea (formerly Chromodoris purpurea) on a bed of jewel anemones (Corynactis viridis).

Orietta Rivolta Chromodoris purpurea Risso in Guérin,1831 Numana,Italy August 2010

Vinicius Padula Orietta Rivolta, do you have more photos on C. luteorosea, C. luteopunctata and also C. britoi?

Orietta Rivolta Vinicius I have only some photos of C.luteorosea

João Pedro Silva Vinicius, I've got plenty of C. luteorosea (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/tags/chromodorisluteorosea/) and just a few of C. luteopunctata (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/tags/chromodorisluteopunctata). C. luteopunctata I've only seen in the Algarve. C. luteorosea can be found further up north, at least until Berlengas.

Vinicius Padula Thank you. Could you both send me photos/links of different specimens of these species, mainly luteopunctata and luteorosea? My email viniciuspadula@yahoo.com

João Pedro Silva Viniciius, os links acima dão acesso a todas as minhas fotos das duas espécies. Há um conjunto engraçado, com o mesmo indivíduo fotografado em 3 ocasiões distintas ao longo de mais de um mês: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/5988742524/

João Pedro Silva Sorry, now in English :) The links above give access to all my photos of both species. There is an interesting sequence with the same individual of C. luteorosea photographed over a period of one month: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2301303813110&set=a.1633700883454.2091201.1264639727&type=3&theater

Vinicius Padula Thanks João!
