Description The knowledge of nudibranchs and sea slugs of northern Veracruz is updated through photographic records. Samplings were performed with snorkel for shallow areas and scuba diving for deep slopes at the Reef System Tuxpan (SAT) during 2014-2016. A total of 11 species of sea slugs were identified at the SAT of which Navanax gemmatus and Oxynoe antillarum are new records for the Lobos-Tuxpan Reef (SALT), while Chelinodura hirundinina, Aplysia morio and Flabellina engeli are recorded for the first time at Veracruz State. The range of distribution of Thuridilla picta, Tyrinna evelinae and Phyllidiidae sp. is extended into the Gulf of Mexico. These new records increase the diversity to 22 species of sea slugs for SALT.
Se actualiza el conocimiento de las babosas marinas de Veracruz a partir de registros fotográficos. Fundamentalmente se efectuaron muestreos con equipo de buceo libre para áreas someras y buceo autónomo para las pendientes profundas del Sistema Arrecifal Tuxpan (SAT) durante el periodo 2014-2016. Se identificaron un total de 11 especies de babosas marinas en el SAT de los cuales Navanax gemmatus y Oxynoe antillarum son nuevos registros para el Sistema Arrecifal Lobos-Tuxpan (SALT), mientras Chelinodura hirundinina, Aplysia morio y Flabellina engeli se registran por primera vez para el estado de Veracruz. Se amplía el ámbito de distribución para el Golfo de México de Thuridilla picta, Tyrinna evelinae, y dos individuos de la familia Phyllidiidae. Estos nuevos registros incrementan el inventario faunístico a 22 especies de babosas marinas para el SALT.
