This species was described as Discodoris coerulescens Bergh, 1888. Dayrat (2010) restricted the genus Discodoris Bergh, 1877 to
Discodoris boholiensis Bergh, 1877, Discodoris cebuensis Bergh, 1877, and some undescribed species and
moved Discodoris coerulescens Bergh, 1888 to the provisional genus ‘Montereina’ MacFarland, 1905.
I posted it on 16 July 2011 at these websites as ‘Montereina’ coerulescens (Bergh, 1888) [Discodoris].
I noticed on 6 August 2020 that WoRMS lists ‘Montereina’ coerulescens with the status alternate representation and changed it
into Discodoris coerulescens Bergh, 1888.
