Abstract

A new species of aeolid nudibranch is described based on specimens collected in the tropical western Atlantic Ocean, from Cubagua Island, Venezuela. The species belongs to the genus Learchis Bergh, 1896. The rhinophoral shape, and body and ceratal coloration are distinct from other previously known species of the genus.
