Opisthobranch molluscs are an extremely interesting group of animals, displaying a wide diversity in shape, colour and life strategies. Chemical ecology of this group is particularly appealing since most species have a reduced or absent shell and have developed chemical defences to avoid : R. N. Gibson, R. J. A. Atkinson, J. D. M. Gordon. Aplysiology. (Book Reviews: Behavioral Biology of Aplysia. A Contribution to the Comparative Study of Opisthobranch Molluscs). Opisthobranch means " gills behind" (and to the right) of the heart. In contrast, Prosobranch means gills in front (of the heart). Opisthobranchs are characterized by two pairs of tentacles and a single gill behind and to the right of the heart. Opisthobranchia are known from as (unranked): clade Heterobranchia, informal group .

Opisthobranch are marine mollusks that are scarcely protected by a shell, which suggests that they possess defensive substances. , For instance, when the Pacific aglajid Navanax inermis is damaged by enemies, it secretes a bright-yellow water-insoluble mixture into its slime trail. From the extracts, three major compounds have been isolated and identified as polyenic compounds 51–   The anatomy and biology of alcyonarian-feeding aeolid opisthobranch molluscs and their development of symbiosis with zooxanthellae W.
