My approach is just put them all in notes. An organisms search will then find any of them :)

There's been a shakeup in the nudi world. Apparently, thanks to new findings, quite a large number of classifications have been moved around. For example, this nudibranch is no longer Risbecia tryoni but Hypselodoris tryoni. Another example is Chromodoris geometrica, which is now known as Goniobranchus geometricus. Confusing eh? :\

....i missed the electric blue margins - enough to scare potential predators - very nice.

well said argybee - the dappling effect (of light and shade) on the body is fantastic. Great photo Eric !

Wow. Subtle but fantastic. The blue outline and shadowy back creates strange illusion of depth for me. (maybe I stared at it too long :)
