New Nudibranch Discovered in Gulf of Mexico

Not to be outdone by Madagascar (post directly below this one), a new species of sea snail has been discovered off Florida:

Biologists with the Florida and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), along with scientists from California State Polytechnic University, have identified a new marine species found in the Gulf of Mexico. A scientific publication released Thursday officially announced the discovery of Chromodoris fentoni, a type of shell-less snail known as a nudibranch.
Seems to be related to the sea hare I video'd a few months ago. Looks like they are.
