Discodoris sp.

Discodoris sp. from South Australia, Australia
 

Comment from the photographer: Dear Nudipixel staff,

I would like to know please if this photo by Stuart Hutchison is an unnamed Rostanga sp., as it is so-named in Bill Rudman's sea slug forum, or an unnamed Discodoris sp. Stuart Hutchison has given approval for me to send you this image. A nudibranch expert from Vicotria in Australia reported this to be an unnamed species in Discodoris, and I note that Neville Coleman also listed an example that looked very much this, as Discodoris paroa from SA and Victoria. Is Discodoris still accepted as a genus name for the southern Australian taxa that used to be included in it? Thanks for your advice.

Regards,
Janine Baker
Marine Ecologist, South Australia
