Acanthodoris hudsoni from British Columbia

October 31, 2000
From: Jeff Goddard

Hi Bill,
Erwin Koehler's dorid (29 October message) looks like Acanthodoris hudsoni to me. The color pattern, long rhinophores, and long slender dorsal papillae all fit. Acanthodoris nanaimoensis is similar in shape but has relatively shorter, red-tipped rhinophores and red-tipped branchial plumes. Cadlina luteomarginata is similar in color to A. hudsoni but has shorter rhinophores and low dorsal tubercles.

Best wishes,

Thanks Jeff,
Bill Rudman.
