Anatomical data on a rare Hypselodoris Picta (Schultz, 1836) (Gastropoda, Doridacea) from the Coast of Brazil with Description of a new Subspecies
Abstract:A rare specimen of the chromodorid doridacean Hypselodoris picta (Schultz, 1836), is described from the southeast coast of Brazil. The coloration of this specimen differs from the typical pattern of the species, mainly due to the presence of a white marginal notal band and dark blue gills without yellow lines on their rachis, as is typical in H. picta. Along with this, the morphology of the reproductive system and the radular teeth of this specimen differs from those of other H. picta. The results of a comparative analysis of Hypselodoris picta is presented in this paper, with description of a new subspecies.
