From editor or global species database
Classification In the text, the authors do state (p. 9) "This name [Felimida] will be used for all eastern Pacific and Atlantic species of Chromodoris and Glossodoris (except Glossodoris sedna)". However, the Supplementary Table lists neither aila nor dictya, nor perola under Felimida, not even in its "hypothesized members", or in any other genus. [details]
