Austrodoris kerguelenensis

From: Nicole Brown

Hello! My name is Nicole. I am from a small town in the Pacific Northwest [USA]. My Biology class is doing reports. My report is on Nudibranchs. One of the individual ones I chose to do was the species Austrodoris kerguelenensis. I cannot find very much information on it because it is rare. If you could send me anything it would be a great help!

Dear Nicole,
This is difficult choice. Austrodoris kerguelensis is found in sub-Antarctic and Antarctic waters and so few people have had the opportunity to study it. I am not sure if you have looked at the Austrodoris kerguelensis Page on the Forum. If not, you will find a summary and references to the major information available on this species.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
