E. Pacific Nudibranch News - New Name for Janna's Dorid: Genus Knoutsodonta now Genus Atalodoris

Since iNat follows WoRMS, and this new genus has been accepted by WoRMS, Genus Knoutsodonta - Hallas & Gosliner, 2015 is now Genus Atalodoris - Iredale & O'Donoghue, 1923. Citation: https://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=597122

Good news, do nothing!
If you have old Observations of Janna's Dorid, the name has automatically been changed to Atalodoris jannae and you don't need to do anything. The same is true for all the observations of the 15 other species in the genus.

The common name remains the same.

Genus Knoutsodonta is now Inactive and should not be used for Observation IDs. Citation: https://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=845525)

For now, I have included the undescribed Knoutsodonta sp-a in the genus name change to Atalodoris, though this may need further review.
