For those of you familiar with Dave Behrens' Pacific Coast Nudibranchs, this book follows the same tried and tested layout, but the content is completely revised, and the geographic scope greatly expanded to include the Pacific coast of Mexico. It contains 314 species -100 more than his earlier book, and includes 360 photos, many of which are new. With the extra photos, colour variation within a species can be illustrated.
Many of you will be familiar with Alicia Hermosillo from her many messages to the Forum about animals she found during her research in Bahia de Banderas, Mexico. Together, Dave and Ali have formed a very productive team, producing a very valuable record of the opisthobranch fauna from Alaska to the sthn coast of Mexico.
