Description of a new species of Piseinotecus (Castropoda, Heterobranchia, Piseinotecidae) from the northeastern Atlantic Ocean
A new species of aeolid nudibranch of the genus Piseinotecus Er. Marcus, 1955 is described based on several specimens from the Atlantic coast of Morocco and the southwestern Iberian Peninsula. This new species is characterized by a translucent violet ground color (very similar to several Flabellina species) with minute opaque white spots over the cerata, latter emerge from stalks, smooth rhinophores, uniseriate radula, and jaw with smooth masticatory border.
