New species added to Portugal's checklist

The number of recorded species has increased significantly the past few days, including some notable observations:

  • @anaferro added the rare observation of Felimida binza in continental Portugal. The species had been previously recorded from the archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira but this was the first time it was recorded from the mainland;
  • @anaclaudiaferreira added the first record for Portugal of Marionia gemmii. It was also the first record of the species on iNaturalist;
  • last but not least, an old record of a new species? A couple of observations I did in 2010 and uploaded to iNaturalist in 2016 stayed unidentified. But the recently described species Doris adrianae brought a new "suspect" to the scene and the confirmation of the identification meant the species got its range extended to Portugal (it was described from Galicia, Spain). Another first for Portugal and for iNaturalist.

Soon the Sea Slugs of Portugal project will turn 5 years old. Stay tuned for the evolution of our numbers in our next journal post. And keep those observations coming!
