Dear Bill,

The species in Erwin's message is Platydoris argo Linnaeus, 1767.

Platydoris dura Pruvot-Fol, 1951 and probably Platydoris philippi Bergh, 1877 are synonyms of the former.

The two other species mentioned by Erwin, Platydoris maculata Bouchet, 1977 and Platydoris stomascuta Bouchet, 1977 have been described from deep-waters, and probably belong to the genus Baptodoris.
