  • Description: Sea slugs, or nudibranchs, had not been studied at all in Norway the past 60 years, until our project was initialised in 1997. We are studying diversity of species and their distribution in Norwegian waters, in total about 100 species are known. Several taxonomic problems warrant species delimitation and description. We use DNA barcoding to map and study the nudibranch fauna, its diversity and distribution.
