"A total of 70 species are described or listed, 68 opisthobranchs and two prosobranchs (Titiscania limacina Bergh, from the Pacific side of the Canal Zone, and a Lamellaria). They were collected chiefly on the coast of Florida and neighboring seas; some are from the Gulf of Panama, where faunistic relationships with the Caribbean Sea are apparent, and from Brazil, Säao Paulo and Sta. Catarina. The opisthobranch faunas in the intertidal zone of the West Indies and that of Brazil, at least in the rather well known area Rio-Säao Paulo, have many species in common. Besides the 2 new subspecies and 18 new species (one of which, Felimare bayeri, francoisi (Risbec, 1928) for Risbecia odhneri Risbec, 1953; Anisdoris rudberghi for A. marmorata Bergh, 1898b (non A. marmorata Bergh, 1881); Aporodoris risbeci for Thordisa hilaris Bergh, 1905, var.
