I have just begun my doctoral research project on the Ecology of the nudibranchs of Bahia de Banderas, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. I would like to share photos of some of the many species I hope to find in my study.
Here is a photo of Hypselodoris agassizii I found on the 24 February, at Los Arcos, Bahia de Banderas, which is my favourite spot.
It was found at about 50 feet next to the wall. In 3 dives we observed 31 individuals of 14 different species.
Locality data: Los Arcos, Bahia de Banderas, State of Jalisco and Nayarit, Mexico, 24 February, 2002.

I have made a Summary Page, outlining your research project and I look forward to seeing more photos and information on your interesting fauna.
