Gary Cobb We had a surgy couple of dives at Flinders Reef Moreton Island yesterday and found 26 species. Here is David Mullins, me and Jo posing at the surface interval in our new H1 Hybrid Waterproof drysuits, very warm aboard Mischief.

Gary Cobb Here the list of species we found: Berthellina citrina Chromodoris aspersa Chromodoris elisabethina Chromodoris lochi Cratena lineata Cratena simba Chromodoris burni Costasiella kuroshimae Doriprismatica atromarginata Elysia sp. 1 Goniobranchus collingwoodi Goniobranchus cf. verrieri Goniodoridella sp. 2 Hypselodoris whitei Plocamopherus imperialis Phyllidiopsis burni Phyllidiella pustulosa Phyllidiella lizae Risbecia godeffroyana Roboastra gracilis Thuridilla livida Thuridilla neona Thuridilla carlsoni Thuridilla gracilis Thuridilla splendens Trinchesia sp. 8

Patrik Good Congrats, good work. The variety of Thuridilla is exciting. With a few of the species I was not sure if they have just changed their names or if I just haven't come across them yet (eg. had to look Dori-S-prismatica atromarginata up).

Gary Cobb Sorry these suits are D1 species not H1!

Gary Cobb Patrik where did you find the spelling with an 's'? I had a re-look at the paper and it is spelled Doriprismatica, -> no 's'. Thanks! Yes we find quite a few Thuridilla at Flinders Reef.

Jim Anderson Your new suits are the business - I've been diving in one for 10 months, even down to 6 deg C. Not a problem your likely to have.

Gary Cobb Patrik the spelling of Doriprismatica is correct according to the paper.

Gary Cobb Hey Jim so you have a Di Hybrid?? Nice work. I love the suit!

Patrik Good Sorry Gary Cobb. Here the link I got it from: http://clade.ansp.org/obis/search.php/3587

Gary Cobb Patrik I think this site is old. It is saying Dorisprismatica is a synonym.

Gary Cobb I have written to Richard to get verification.

Ashley Missen Is there an email version coming out

Gary Cobb See thread above!

Gary Cobb 27 species actually!

Ajiex Dharma Hypselodoris???

Gary Cobb Where was this found?? What is its size?? It could be Hypselodoris maridadilus Rudman, 1977

Ajiex Dharma I found in seraya secret Tulamben Bali,the size is quite big i don't know exactly. ....have you been diving in tulamben area??

Gary Cobb No I have not dived there yet. Sounds good!

Ajiex Dharma You should try to dive there...!! :)

Jim Anderson ..or could it be Hypselodoris whitei (Adams & Reeve, 1850)

Gary Cobb Yes it could be Jim but the dorsal stripes are uninterrupted. H. white seems to be broken.

Jim Anderson are the white tips to the rhinofores typical of whitei - also according to Rudman whitei is west pacific and maridilus west indian ocean
