Notes from Dr. Richard C. Willan: On the Sea Slug Forum, Bill Rudman has changed the specific names for five species of Ceratosoma in accordance with the Rules prescribed for scientific names by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. However he is incorrect in changing the name of this particular one

Kingdom:Animalia
Phylum:Mollusca
Class:Gastropoda
Subclass:Opisthobranchia
Order:Nudibranchia
Suborder:Doridina
Family:Chromodorididae
Species:Ceratosoma miamirana

Orodoris miamirana

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #12878
But I prefer Orodoris miamirana, the original genus, especially as people still distinguish between the three groups (Miamira, Ceratosoma, and Orodoris)

A juvenile individual.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1034
On the Sea Slug Forum, Bill Rudman has changed the specific names for five species of Ceratosoma in accordance with the Rules prescribed for scientific names by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. However he is incorrect in changing the name of this particular one – the specific name miamirana cannot be changed at all (it is a noun in apposition) unlike all the other four (that are adjectives). So this one stays as Ceratosoma miamirana.
