Range extended to the Exclusive Economic Zone of Portugal

Due to some species being pelagic it's only natural that the project includes records outside the territorial boundaries of Portugal but within its Exclusive Economic Zone. This adds one more species to the Project checklist, Fiona pinnata.

A new species for Portugal

Toms et al. (2021) described 4 new species which had been previously identified as Limacia clavigera. One of those, Limacia inesae, is present in Portugal and can be distinguished more easily by the smaller size and the arrangement of the dorsal papillae in a single median line:

Change to "collection project"

I've changed this project to the new "collection" type so it gathers records automatically. Also included other opisthobranchs as most who are interested in nudibranchs have a wider interest in sea slugs in general.
