Article Title: A New Species of Flabellina (Nudibranchia, Aeolidacea) from Oshoro Bay, Japan
Abstract: Flabellina amabilis sp. nov. from Oshoro Bay, western Hokkaido, Japan, is described and illustrated. The living animal can be distinguished easily from closely related species by the particular patterns of white coloration on the body, the morphology of the foot corners, the ceratal arrangement, the position of the anus and gonopore, and the unique shape of its penis.
