Although these data cannot be extrapolated to other groups of opistho-branchs, and some of the most conspicuously colored groups (such as chromodorid nudibranchs) could have achieved rapid diversification because of aposematic coloration defense strategies (Johnson and Gosliner, 2012), the present paper points out the need for caution in making broad generali7ations about the biological and evolutionary role of color in opisthobranchs and other marine organisms.
