Dorid nudibranchs from eastern Australia (Gastropoda, Opisthobranchia)



Collections of nudibranch gastropods made in 1968 are described. All the 18 eastern Australian species of doridaceans (excluding chromodoridiform species) obtained are illustra-ed and investigated anatomically, often for the first time since their original discovery over a century ago. A list of the dorid nudibranches reliably recorded from Australian waters (compiled by R. Burn) supplements the paper.
