Identification history

Sea slug / Sea hare / Nudibranch Goniobranchus tinctorius 15 Apr 2018 MattNimbs
Unidentified 15 Apr 2018 libbyh408

Author's notes

I think this is Chromodoris cf. reticulata but we don't have it on our list yet. It was a really big nudibranch, around 90 - 100mm when fully extended. A hypselodoris came up to it and it rolled over showing a white underside with yellow/oragey edges. A very hndsome creature.

G. tinctorius is a species complex which needs to be resolved. Chromdoris. cf. reticulatus is the same animal

Aah the name changes! hard for us amateurs to keep up. What is your best ID reference these days, my Cobb and Willan seems to be giving me old names for several species. Where should we be checking?

With this species complex there is no current reliable ref. as it remains unresolved - i learned this littel factoid at a conference. The best place to check the current name of a marine critter is WoRMS http://www.marinespecies.org/. Don't worry too much about it though. As long as the use of an old name is accurate to the animal then the current name can be looked up later. Cobb and Willan is not nearly comprehensive enough. Have a look at the paper that Steve and I wrote for NSW - more pics: http://www.publish.csiro.au/RS/RS16011
