Abstract: The rich opisthobranch fauna of the Marshall Islands has remained
largely unstudied because of the geographic remoteness of these Pacific
islands. We report on a long-term collection of Opisthobranchia assembled from
the atolls of Bikini, Enewetak, Kwajalein, Rongelap, and Ujelang . Fifty-seven
new records for the Marshall Islands are recorded, raising to 103 the number of
species reported from these islands. Aspects of the morphology, ecology, development,
and systematics of 76 of these species are discussed.
