Sea Slugs, Chromodoris annae ~
Comment on Chromodoris annae from the Solomons by Bruce Potter. I was watching the continuous photograph of Chromodoris annaeand I had strange discovery.
Species — In biology, a species is the basic unit of biological classification and a taxonomic rank. I am beginnng to wonder if they chromodoirs all colour variants of one species.
Although, they have a distribution, most species are found in the Indo-Pacific region.
Best wishes, Bill Rudman, W. There is no possibility of influence on a film Chromodoris annae in BunakenSulawesi.
Dear Harro, This is Chromodoris annae.
Just thought it would chromocoris nice to share these pictures of Chromodoris willani [upper], C. I suppose there is a symmetry in people in Australia wanting to keep fish from the Amazon River in their aquaria and people from Brazil wanting to keep animals from Australian waters in their aquaria.
My feeling is that it is something to do with the digital camera. Certainly all the existing evidence shows that they are very specific feeders on particular sponges.
Two models for the composition of Europa predict a large subsurface ocean of liquid water. Mollusca of the Indo-West Pacific: There are recently extinct species of gastropods,18 species that are now extinct in the wild and 69 possibly extinct species, the number of prehistoric species of gastropods is at least 15, species.
The publication of Chronodoris Darwins Origin of Species led to new ways of thinking about classification based on evolutionary relationships and this was the concept of phyletic systems, from onwards.

Mollusc species can also represent hazards or pests for human activities, the bite of the blue-ringed octopus is often fatal, and that of Octopus apollyon causes inflammation that can last for over a month.

Is it Chromodris annae or Chromodoris michaeli. While this definition is often adequate, looked at more closely it is problematic, for example, with hybridisation, in a species complex of hundreds of similar microspecies, or in a ring species, the boundaries between closely related species become unclear.
