Several studies have been conducted on the richness and abundance of molluscs in the coastal coral reefs of the Gulf of Mexico since 1960's, but these have focused mainly on knowledge of prosobranch gastropods and bivalves species, while only 6 species of opisthobranchs have been registered for this ecosystem. In this paper we present a list of 23 species of opisthobranchs from the Veracruz Reef System National Park, a complex of 23 coral formations located on the coast of Veracruz on the Gulf of Mexico. The list includes 9 new records, a systematic arrangement and pictures of several of the species mentioned here.
