Chromodoris annulata

The branch of the week is Chromodoris annulata. It was described by Sliot in 1904 from Zanzibar. It is common in South Africa, Tanzania and the Red Sea. Bertsch and Kerstich found a single specimen in the Gulf of California. It has also been found from the Maldives and Thailand.

As a new feature to the Slug Site, a different nudibranch will be selected on a weekly basis for enchanced display.
