Chromodorid nudibranchs from eastern Australia (Gastropoda, Opisthobranchia)*


  • *This paper is respectfully dedicated to the memory of Professor Ernst Marcus, of Sao Paulo, Brazil.


Collections of nudibranch gastropods made in 1968 and 1969 are described. All the 11 eastern Australian species of Casella, Hypselodoris and Chromodoris obtained are fully illustrated by line diagrams, photographs and water-colours. Two species new for Australia are described, and nine others are re-described. A list of the chromodoridiform species reliably recorded from Australian waters concludes the paper.
