Nudibranch records from Colombia

October 8, 2000
From: Phanor Montoya

Dear Bill:

Thanks again for your help! Now, I have found about 15 diferent species of opisthobranchs here in Santa Marta, Colombia. I will be sending you some of the photos that I took of them.

I have read Marcus and other scientist's Caribbean opisthobranch work looking to see if the species that I have found have been reported for Colombia, but they just report them for the Caribbean and don't specify which countries. If you know where can I found if these species are new for Colombia please let me know.

Thanks again!

Dear Phanor,
Thanks for the photos you have sent. I will put them on the Forum over the next few days. One place you will find countries listed is in Eveline Marcus's Checklist:

Marcus, Ev. (1977) An annotated checklist of the Western Atlantic warm water opisthobranchs. Journal of Molluscan Studies. Supplement 4. November 1977. 1-22.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
