Hypselodoris sp.

Hypselodoris sp.

This nudibranch could not be identified with any described species at the time it was collected in at Park Rynie on the Natal South Coast of South Africa. It is distinguishable by its translucent white body with a cream sub-marginal band, cream mid-dorsal nottling, and minute black spots. There is an interrupted, purple, marginal band and the gills and rhinophores possess red pigment. This same picture can be seen on page 128 of Nudibranchs of Southern Africa
