Analogium striatum

(Eliot, 1908)

Also known as: Gymnodoris striata

Analogium striatum
Photographed by: Lars Persson

The arrangement of the gills is a good character to recognise the two species of Analogium (Analogium amakusanum and Analogium striatum) as distinct from Gymnodoris, and also the name Analogium is used today by numerous authors.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #6920
The gills are arranged in a transverse row across the back in this species (nicely shown in this photo) and also in Analogium amakusanum, which is why they are both presently placed in the genus Analogium rather than Gymnodoris (in which the gills are arranged in a circle as in all other dorids).
