113. Anisodoris nobilis (MacFarland, 1905) [now: Peltodoris nobilis (MacFarland, 1905)]
From Dave Behren's Supplement to Pacific Coast Nudibranchs:

"Anisodoris nobilis was originally placed in the genus Montereina (MacFarland 1905) and later
transferred to the genus Anisodoris. Valdés and Gosliner (2001), having conducted a careful review
of caryophyllidia-bearing dorid nudibranchs, noted that the type species of Anisodoris was
caryophyllidia-bearing and they, therefore, transferred it to Diaulula. Anisodoris nobilis, however,
unlike the type species of the genus, has small rounded tubercles with no protruding spicules on
the dorsal surface. Because it does not have caryophyllidia, this species recently has been transferred
to the genus Peltodoris Bergh, 1880 (Valdés 2002)."
