This paper describes a study of the nudibranchs from the family Chromodorididae Bergh, 1891 that were sampled in several expeditions along the coast of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Fernando de Noronha (Brazil). A total of eight species of this family were studied and a new species, Chromodoris paulomarcioi n. sp., is described. The taxon Hypselodoris picta lajensis Troncoso, García and Urgorri, 1998, is proposed for consideration within the taxonomic category of species, and new records for some species are provided.
