Goniobranchus sp.44 Undescribed

I want to thank Dave Cowdery for sending this one as it is certainly new to me! Based on the color pattern on the notum, I would say Dave has nailed the identification as Goniobranchus sp.44 in NSSI Ed 1! Seeing Dave's find just fires up the wanderlust in me to hit the water in hopes of finding sea slugs new both to science and me! At times, this quest seems comparable to looking for a needle in a haystack, but we must persevere! In that vain, I will be in Malaysia from Sept. 10th to the 28th. Hopefully a new BOW will go up Oct.1st!
