Members of the infraorder Aeolidida often have a large number of colorful, relatively long cerata (fringes) on the back. These hold poison captured from digested cnidarians. The translucent grey or white body rarely exceeds a length of 4-5 cm. Many species have a pair of rhinophores and a pair oral tentacles on the head.


The taxonomy of the Aeolidida infraorder was heavily revised in 2017, based on recent genetic and morphological studies. On this website Aeolidida is organized according to the linked article, since WoRMS was not entirely updated at the time of writing.
