Uma nova especie de eolide (Mollusca, Nudibranchia) e descrita da Nigeria e nomeada em homenagem a Eveline Marcus, Flabellina evelinae. 
A new nudibranch, Flabellina albomaculata sp. nov. (Flabellinidae), from the Cape Verde Archipelago with comparisons among all eastern Atlantic violet Flabellina spp.
This species is characterized by having smooth rhinophores and cerata not inserted on stalks, and is compared with all the eastern Atlantic violet Flabellina spp.
Polyphyly of the traditional family Flabellinidae affects a major group of Nudibranchia: aeolidacean taxonomic reassessment with descriptions of several new families, genera, and species (Mollusca, Gastropoda)
It was found that the current family Flabellinidae is polyphyletic and its phylogeny and taxonomic patterns cannot be understood without considering members from all the Aeolidacean families and, based on a robust phylogenetic hypothesis, morpho-anatomical evolution of aeolids is more complex than suspected in earlier works and requires reclassification of the taxon.
List of the Worldwide Food Habits of Nudibranchs
The list of the worldwide food habits of nudibranchs was originally available on the web as a supplement to two articles published in the Veliger: McDonald & Nybakken, 1997 & 1999, so it is uploaded to eScholarship in order to make it available once again.
