Bob Burn - “...Valdes & Fahey 2006 [pp. 97-99]... point out that Dendrodoris denisoni is ‘most likely’ a junior synonym of Actinodoris krusensternii J.E. Gray, 1850. Unlike the other Gray 1850 senior synonyms that they discuss, they do not proclaim D. denisoni a nomen proctectum and A. krusensternii a nomen oblitum, leaving the way open for eventual use of the latter name in the event of a generic revision indicating a complex of species each needing a separate name. Until such time as the genus is revised, the status quo is to be maintained, that is Dendrodoris denisoni is the name to use for this species.”
