Darrell Broome I appreciate and respect the work that you do. I am concerned about the future of our Oceans and all Marine Life. I constantly try to research and share information with the public. I would like to be friends with you if possible. Thank you.

Sonja Ooms Ornate Elysia (?) munching away in Beirut, Lebanon - 02/11/2013 Found at about 8-9m of depth and was about 3-4 cm big.

Natalia Rifai Here are the most common nudies in the mediterianian and I have spotted them all in Lebanon.

Natalia Rifai I have seen those nudies as shallow as 50cm, they are everywhere after a storm, by the hundreds on the larger rocks.

Natalia Rifai This one is Thuridillia Hopei according to this list

Natalia Rifai Not in one dive site, but across the cost.

Natalia Rifai The only place where I managed to spot all of them in one dive was in Italy near Rome.

João Pedro Silva This is not Thuridilla hopei. It's either Elysia ornata or E. grandifolia (might be synonyms, in spite of the difference in radular teeth). Both have been recorded in the Mediterranean. For discussion on this, check this post at the Sea Slug Forum: http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/5727

João Pedro Silva For accurate images of Thuridilla hopei showing how different they are from Elysia ornata, check some examples at Nudipixel: http://www.nudipixel.net/species/thuridilla_hopei/

Ana Lama Y este????

David Serrano Se te ha quemado un poco

Victor Sanchez Sabia yo que enseñarías una placida cremoniana!! Nico la vio y ese dia yo no estaba jajaja

Ana Lama Es para picar a Manuel , ja, ja

Manuel Martínez Chacón Una bonita Placida cremoniana... por desgracia yo aún no me he topado con ella...

Manuel Martínez Chacón Por cierto, este tampoco es un nudibranquio, sino un opistobranquio de la familia de los sacoglossos (como el Thuridilla hopei).

Xavi Carrillo de Albornoz Hypselodoris bilineata (Ullastres I)

Owen Wangensteen En realidad, es una Thuridilla hopei.

Fabián Encinas buenas una consulta es una Hypselodoris bilineata o Hypselodoris bilineata ??

Owen Wangensteen Fabián, no entiendo bien tu pregunta... Si te refieres a si es "una" (femenino) o "un" (masculino), la respuesta es que "Doris" y todos sus derivados son femeninos. Por eso el nombre de la especie es "bilineata" y no "bilineatus". Así que se debería decir "Una Hypselodoris", "Una Peltodoris", "Una Chromodoris" etc., siempre en femenino, igual que se dice "Una jirafa".
