Thorunna daniellae

Gary Cobb While we're on the subject of Thorunna daniellae (must have been named after a woman named Daniella, proper convention.) Here is one nicely posed 25mm.

Gary Cobb Correction: Halgerda sp. 2 is correct.

Franca Wermuth-Vezzoli So far I thought this is Hypselodoris bullockii, but now I wonder if it is maybe Thorunna daniellae? Can anybody help?

Erwin Koehler I guess you meant T. halourga Johnson & Gosliner, 2001

Franca Wermuth-Vezzoli Yes, sorry, I meant T. halourga - is my picture T. halourga?

Blogie Robillo ID pls? Is it a species of Hypselodoris? Abt 1cm long, depth 19m

Lee Goldman Looks like Danielle's Thorunna (Thorunna daniellae) - in the family Chromodorididae.

Blogie Robillo Thanks Lee! :)

Blogie Robillo Is this a Hypselodoris species? Abt 10mm, depth 19m
