Atagema intecta

(Kelaart, 1858)


Jim Anderson My Philippine Nudibranchs website is updated following our recent trip - 92 species added plus many additional images.

Patrik Good Nice work. Makes me to follow up on two of my IDs based on your Gastropteron sp. 2 and Hypselodoris sp. 2 pictures. There seem to be little differences between Gastropteron, Siphopteron and Sagaminopteron. At the moment I can't see why your Hypselodoris sp. 2 can not be a Hypselodoris obscura that we are finding in all sorts of texture and colour variations.

Erwin Koehler I will check the IDs if time permits... I think this one http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/phyllodesmium-crypticum-01.html is Phyllodesmium pinnatum Moore & Gosliner, 2009

Blogie Robillo Nice collection!

Blogie Robillo I do believe this one that you labeled Chromodoris sp. 22 is in fact Glossodoris rufomarginata: http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/chromodoris-sp22-01.html

Erwin Koehler I think this one http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/phyllodesmium-sp2-01.html is Phyllodesmium tuberculatum Moore & Gosliner, 2009

Blogie Robillo This one might not be H. tryoni (but I'm not sure): http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/Hypselodoris%20tryoni-03.html

Christopher Thorn Fantastic!

Jim Anderson Thanks folks - I've corrected and updated the site - please pass on any more mistakes!!

Erwin Koehler the Aegires villosus variant with the black tips is in IPN at page 144 Aegires sp. 4, I am not convinced that they are distinct species.

Erwin Koehler Comment from Dr. Richard C. Willan at NUDIPIXEL: "Atagema ornata and Atagema intecta both relate to the same species and we must use Atagema ornata (instead of Atagema intecta - which is more common in the literature) because it is the older name."

Erwin Koehler This specimen has 5 lobes http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/ceratosoma-trilobatum-01.html it is Ceratosoma tenue

Erwin Koehler This specimen http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/dermatobranchus-sp1-01.html looks like Dermatobranchus pustulosus van Hasselt, 1824

Erwin Koehler Nembrotha yonowae Goethel & Debelius, 1992 has a red margin of the foot similar to N. kubaryana Bergh, 1877, your specimens are undescribed, I guess there are several species with a black background color and red spots

Erwin Koehler Comment from Nathalie Yonow: Phyllidiopsis xishaensis is well known throughout the Indo-Pacific as Phyllidiopsis striata Bergh, 1889. This is a misnomer as Phyllidiopsis striata Bergh, 1889 is a valid species, in the genus Phyllidiella as Phyllidiella striata (Bergh, 1889) [Phyllidiopsis] and clearly different, more similar to Phyllidiella rosans.

Erwin Koehler this species http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/plocamopherus-imperialis-01.html looks like Plocamopherus ceylonicus (Kelaart, 1858)
