Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy The original description of Doris tricolor was considered so poor by Gosliner (1990) that he considered that the name should be abandoned. Posteriorly Ortea, Valdes & Garcia-Gomez (1996) selected a neotype for Cantraine's Doris tricolor and synonymized with it H. midatlantica Gosliner, 1990. Ortea et al.'s neotype selection is contested by Gosliner (see http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/3807), and there are thus different opinions on the valid name for the taxonomical species involved. Overall, the European school uses H. tricolor and the American school uses H. midatlantica. As the neotype designation has not been rejected by the ICZN, we follow here the traditional European usage. Philippe Bouchet, 22 Feb. 2011. [details]
