I saw the new page on your web site the next day.  It looks great.  Thanks for your help and all the information.  I am sending you some new slides today under separate E-Mails.  Don't worry about how long the identifications take.  This is just a hobby for me.  I appreciate whatever information you can provide.  I've bought every book on Sea Slugs I could find and was thrilled to find all the slug sites on the internet.  Unfortunately, there is very little on sea slugs in my area.

Dear Betsey,
Glad to be of help. Information and photos of living opisthobranchs from the western Atlantic is very difficult to obtain. The late Kerry Clark's West Atlantic Opisthobranch website, is one of the few places to get easy information on the opisthobranch fauna of that region.

Photos of any sea slugs from your region, and questions would be welcome. Although I have no personal experience of your fauna, as you have seen, there are many opisthobranch workers accessing this site and helping out with identifications and information, when needed.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
