No doubt many will thank you - well done ! It must be a wonderful world down there and I hope it stays a secure place for these beauties.

Thanks, Mark and Leuba. I've been documenting local species of nudibranchs for the past 15 years mostly because there was little information available. Believe it or not, the only field guide available for Portugal until 2008 had only half a dozen nudibranchs.
