  • The appearance and layout of the site have been changed to celebrate our 6th anniversary, if you have any comments please let me know. With the additional space available on the new server images are being re-scanned and saved at a higher resolution to improve legibility; the thumbnails are complete and the main images are underway. Because these main images are somewhat larger they will take longer to display on telephone modem lines (that's encouragement to move to a broadband link if you can!)
  • Meanwhile on the nudibranch front another tiny species Doto maculata has been found and added to the site along with more images of Trinchesia caerulea, Doto coronata, Doto dunnei, Doto fragilis, and Limacia clavigera.
  • Following careful consideration of the arguments we have accepted the older genus Flabellina and have changed from Coryphella.
