Nuno Filipe Silvestre Peltodoris atromaculata Foto tirada dia 02 de Abril de 2013 a uma profundidade de +- 14 metros

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.

Henrique Nascimento Catarina Hypselodoris tricolor, protecting their eggs or making more?

João Pedro Silva Felimare tricolor, they don't "protect" as they have no parental care. These might even belong to another individual (although this may be the father). They lay the eggs turning counterclockwise, fron the inside out. The individual in the photo is turning to the right, so it's not spawning at this moment. They often mate and lay the eggs in the same spot, so sometimes you have both individuals spawning next to each other: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/4870539388/in/set-72157626720024632

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.

O Gajo Dos Olivais Felimare tricolor, Local: Sesimbra Spot: Baía dos Porcos 8 m 2013-09-01

João Pedro Silva Uma abordagem original :) Talvez fizesse um crop de forma a ter um pouco menos espaço negativo do lado esquerdo (ou mais espaço negativo relativo do lado direito)

O Gajo Dos Olivais Foi uma experiência. Conta com edição, limpeza, máquina assente no fundo, "longa" exposição (1/15) com nenhuma fola, abertura pequeníssima, luz indirecta, luz solar e mesmo assim... trabalhinho de edição. Tentei compensar os espaços negativos mas a proporção que via acabava por dar um aspecto muito desproporcional ao motivo. Foi a minha primeira. Outras virão. Tenho aqui mais umas para limpar... :)

Monica Dalmases Martin Are Hypselidoris tricolor and Felimare tricolor the same nudibranch?! I can't see the diference...

O Gajo Dos Olivais Monica, the NE Atlantic Hypselodoris genera was reclassified to Felimare last year

O Gajo Dos Olivais oh, and some species of Chromodoris to 'Felimida', like 'Felimida' purpurea, 'Felimida' krohni, etc.

O Gajo Dos Olivais Check it here: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0033479

João Pedro Silva Not only the NE Atlantic Hypselodoris: all Hypselodoris from the Atlantic are now Felimare and all Chromodoris of the Atlantic are now 'Felimida'... and the same happened to some of the Western Pacific. And Glossodoris to 'Felimida'. It was a major revision.

João Pedro Silva Regarding "Hypselodoris tricolor" and "Felimare tricolor", they are the same but only the latter name is valid: http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=139155

Monica Dalmases Martin I supused it...!! Thanks! this information is perfect!!! I will remember it by fire :-)

O Gajo Dos Olivais Yes, sorry,I meant Atlantic and not only NE. I Wwas under the impression that Pacific Hypselodoris would remain though..

Monica Dalmases Martin In Mediterran Sea change it too. In catalonia there are a ophistobranch research group and I asked about the change of genus denomination . If you want i can post the answer I think is interesant to classificate the sp.

O Gajo Dos Olivais Thank you Monica, it would be nice

João Pedro Silva Are you talking about GROC, Monica Dalmases Martin? I know (and admire) their work :)

João Pedro Silva Fernando Trindade, regarding Pacific's Felimare, there are quite a few. Remember the connection between south and north America is relatively "recent": http://www.medslugs.de/E/Pac-E/Nudibranchia.htm#Doridacea

Monica Dalmases Martin Exactly João Pedro Silva. I met them last year did a training course for species identification. Since then I belong ti thr association but I don't reported sightings by the moment. You are doing a good job too. I love all this ecosistem and aportation that people do it! Thanks x-D

João Pedro Silva Some of the photos in the field guide "Sea Slugs of the Algarve" came from members of GROC. http://hypselodoris.blogspot.pt/p/guia-de-campo-field-guide.html

Monica Dalmases Martin The answer was Hypselidoris changed the family name beeing Felimare and Chromodoris beeing Felimida. All this it was a genetic reasons :-D Thanks for your help!!

João Pedro Silva And there are more revisions of nudibranchs based on molecular studies, some already published and other still ongoing.

Xavi Carrillo de Albornoz ¿ Alguien me puede decir el nombre de éste (mejor dicho éstos) nudibranquios vistos en Furió Fitó ? Gracias

Ada Serrano Hypselodoris tricolor?

Jol Falcés Sí senyora! Més monussss... Menage a trois!

Xavi Carrillo de Albornoz Gràcies !!

Paco Bonilla Ese amarillo parece mas un reflejo del foco que propio de los animales. Si el borde exterior es en realidad blanco yo me inclino más por H. orsini. Cómo era Xavi, blanco o amarillo???. Una pregunta más: ¿estaban en la parte de arriba de la pared que está justo enfrente del furió?

Jol Falcés Pues ahora que lo dices, sí que parece más una Hypselodoris Orsinii, pero lo veo más por las rinóforas azules que por los colores del curerpo. Las líneas submarginales pueden ser amarillas en H. Orsinii, y blancas en los extremos.

Jol Falcés Bien visto! ;-P

Jol Falcés http://guia.opistobranquis.org/2009/12/hypselodoris-orsinii.html

Paco Bonilla Eah!

Xavi Carrillo de Albornoz Hola Paco, tengo otra foto sin luz directa y es amarillo el borde exterior. Comparándolo con la guia que ha colgado Jol sí que parece una Hypselodoris Orsinii. Estaba en la pared de Furió mismo. Gracias a los dos, así voy aprendiendo poco a poco
