Hypselodoris midatlantica

Gosliner, 1990


Ab van Lenten Can anyone help with the identification of this nudi, found at the Costa Brava. It's about 1 a 2 cm long. I first thought about a Felimare orsinii, but they have more deep blue colors I think, or a Felimare tricolor maybe Thanks, Ab

Boomer William Wing Hypselodoris midatlantica

Marli Wakeling Possibilities are here, with old taxonomy: http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/11220

João Pedro Silva Felimare tricolor http://hypselodoris.blogspot.pt/2008/07/hypselodoris-tricolor-cantraine-1835.html

Boomer William Wing Lol...looks like we are all ID the same thing: Hypselodoris midatlantica = Felimare tricolor = Hyselodoris tricolor.

João Pedro Silva Sure, but the valid name is Felimare tricolor and the other are junior synonyms: http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=597530

Boomer William Wing I see that Gosliner did all that last year, 2012. DNA mapping is changing allot of species.

João Pedro Silva Yes, it's freely available here: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0033479 In spite of being so recent, me and Gonçalo Calado decided to adopt it in our guide "Sea Slugs of the Algarve" due to the overwhelming evidence (http://hypselodoris.blogspot.pt/p/guia-de-campo-field-guide.html)

Boomer William Wing Yes, João Pedro Silva I already saw it. Looks like a nice book you guys have.

Boomer William Wing I found it in the marinespecies link you provided " we follow here the traditional European usage. Philippe Bouchet, 22 Feb. 2011. [details]" Then clicked on [details], then "Sources" on the next page.

João Pedro Silva Thanks, Boomer William Wing.

Ab van Lenten Thanks all for your response

Orietta Rivolta Thanks João,I hope that in nudipixel accept the new names!

João Pedro Silva I think you should use Hypselodoris midatlantica on Nudipixel and then let them change the database. With the backlog of updates I imagine they're accumulating it may take a few months.
