Eastern Pacific Nudibranch News - Revisions in Genus Coryphella

Pacific Northwest nudibranch observers: Two new name changes, but you don't have to do anything.

1) Predaceous Aeolis (Himatina trophina) has a new genus name once again. The current name is now Coryphella trophina. I have retained the old common name (Predaceous Aeolis) for clarity.

2) Coryphella pseudoverrucosa is no longer a separate species. It is now considered a junior subjective synonym of Coryphella verrucosa (Red-fingered Aeolis).

In both cases, you do not have to go back and rename your Observations, it happened automatically when I did the taxon swaps.
