Will the discoveries ever end? While sorting through photos Mabel Fang submitted for the Sea Challengers Nudibranch Calendar we tripped across this unbelievable creature from Indonesia. It certainly looks like a chromodorid, but without an internal peak at its radula, we cannot say for sure what genus it might belong to. The marginal band color configuration reminds me a little of Chromodoris collingswoodi , but that where the comparison ends. The shape of the tubercles on the dorsal surface is unique and characteristic.
Sure wish we had a specimen. Thanks Mabel, for making us aware of this new beauty.
My first experience with photography was in 2001 with a Sony P1, and I subsequently upgraded to a Coolpix 5000 (in Light and Motion housing and one Inon strobe) which I've been using ever since.
