Description by Wayne Ellis:

Goniobranchus thompsoni  Rudman, 1983

This species is endemic to the New South Wales (Austalia) coast and is similiar to Goniobranchus loringi

Orginially described by Thompson as C. loringi, closer observation of the colouration and teeth shows the Angas description of C.loringi to be accurate. The species was named by Bill Rudman in honour of Dr T.E. Thompson who has done some much to stimulate and further taxanomic interest in Opisthobranchs.

Photographic equipment: Nikonos lV-A, 35mm lens with 2:1 extension tubes and Aqua-Sea Strobe. Kodak Kodochrome 64 film. Image digitially enhanced.
