Hypselodoris cantabrica

David Serrano Son sinónimos http://www.asturnatura.com/especie/hypselodoris-cantabrica.html

David Serrano El cambio de nombre se debe a un estudio genético. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0033479

João Pedro Silva Sim, eu conheço o estudo. A questão é que precisamente por causa desse estudo, o nome Hypselodoris cantabrica já não é aceite (aliás, não há espécies dos géneros Hypselodoris ou Chromodoris nativas do Atlântico e Mediterrâneo).

James Padfield Having trawled nudipixel.com, I think the first one (~25mm) is Chromodoris britoi, and the second (~45mm) is either Hypselodoris picta or Hypselodoris cantabrica - can anyone confirm these? Both were taken off of the Azores last week, in about 15m of water.

João Pedro Silva The second is Felimare picta azorica, an endemic subspecies. The first ID is correct but the current classification is 'Felimida' britoi. More on the revision of the Chromodorididae (which moved the Atlantic Hypselodoris and Chromodoris to the Felimida clade) here: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0033479

James Padfield Thanks for the info Joáo

João Pedro Silva You're welcome, James!

João Pedro Silva Nuno, that's Peltodoris atromaculata, a common species in our area. When posting here, as this is a group more oriented towards studying sea slugs and less for sharing pretty pictures, keep in mind it's important to say where it was taken including depth and time of the year as this information may prove useful.

Nuno Filipe Silvestre Como costumo mergulhar na nossa área tenho algumas fotos de nudibrânquios e é como muito gosto que partilho as imagens do mesmo par efeitos de estudos. Suponho que o interesse seja bilateral, eu porque dentro do possível tento tirar boa fotos e partilhar e vocês que conseguem obter uma ajuda na monotorização das espécies. Entretanto fiquei com duvidas se realmente têm interesse ou não em saber os dados relacionados como o local e data do registo fotográfico. Caso haja algum interesse nas minhas fotos, não tenho apenas deste Peltodoris atromaculata, como também tenho de Dondice banyulensis, Flabellina babai, Doriopsilla areolata, Roboastra europaea, Felimare picta, Felimida krohni ( Chromodoris krohni), Platydoris argo, Felimare villafranca (Hypselodoris villafranca), Felimare cantabrica (Hypselodoris cantabrica), Felimida krohni (Chromodoris krohni), Doriopsilla pelseneeri, Felimare tricolor (Hypselodoris tricolora). João, peço desculpa pela resposta em Português, mas pelo nome pareceu-me também o ser!

Nuno Filipe Silvestre Também não tinha reparado que o estudo estava restrito a uma zona.

João Pedro Silva Sim, Nuno, também sou português, assim como muitos outros aqui. But for the sake of communication between all the participants we keep english as the "lingua franca". All data is useful although those species are fairly common along the portuguese coast. Feeding, mating and spawning behaviours are always welcome. Regarding that particular spot, it's where I hold my personal record: 27 species in a single 60' immersion :)

João Pedro Silva If you're interested, go through my blog to meet some other sea slugs in our area and also identify further observations: http://hypselodoris.blogspot.pt/

João Pedro Silva I went through some of your photos of nudibranchs and spotted a couple of misidentifications (one Felimida purpurea identified as Felimida krohni and a Felimare cantabrica identified as Felimare picta) but I'm unable to comment there.

João Pedro Silva On a sequence of photos of a couple of Hypselodoris cantabrica shot today in Sesimbra, Portugal, about 8m deep, I found a small worm crawling, maybe 1mm long. Any idea what it is?

Carlos Fernández-Cid Ramos From Galicia Spain. Vigo

Josep LLuis Peralta Rebull Flabellina babai

Carlos Fernández-Cid Ramos Thank You Nudimaster. I know

João Pedro Silva Interesting how not so long ago this was thought to be endemic to the Mediterranean. Right after Hypselodoris villafranca, it's the most common and easily seen nudibranch here in Portugal.

Erling Svensen THIS was a beautiful one. Congratulations...! Can you export one to Norway? (alive)

João Pedro Silva Don't know if it would survive the trip (they are fairly large and active so I suppose their metabolism is rather fast). I'm often asked if this species is expanding its distribution. I really don't know but I'm more inclined to say that there are more "nudi aware" divers with cameras and also more diving spots.

Carlos Fernández-Cid Ramos Thanks Joao and Erling. It´s my first Babai in Galicia. It´s rare here. The H.Villafranca and Cantabrica are the most common

João Pedro Silva The "Top 5" in frequency here in Portugal are Hypselodoris villafranca, Flabellina babai, Hypselodoris cantabrica, Hypselodoris tricolor and Chromodoris krohni.
