Catalonian Checklist

These are the opisthobranch mollucs species actually known to be present in the coast of Catalonia (NE Spain) according to Ballesteros et al. (2016) with later modifications to include the taxonomic changes proposed by Cella et al. (2016) regarding the family Fionidae and the Diaphorodoris species separation demonstrated by Furfaro et al. (2016):

No species from the order Acochlidiacea  Odhner, 1937  are included because at present there are no studies nor reports of this group from Catalan coasts.


Bibliography based on the works by Steve Long, 2006. Bibliography of Opisthobranchia 1554-2000 and Gary McDonald, 2009. Bibliographia Nudibranchia, with later updates from other resources.
