Chromodoris quadricolor from Egypt
Identification verified by Nathalie Yonow
 

Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Nathalie Yonow: Comment from Dr. Nathalie Yonow: Another Chromodoris quadricolor, but fuzzy. They happen. Distinguished from Chromodoris africana by the blue colouring and the white line along the edge of the mantle margin.

Comment from Dr. Richard C. Willan: Thirty years ago it was seriously believed that all the black-striped chromodorids in the world were just variants of this species. Now there as many as 20 species in this group. How times have changed!
