Chromodoris rubrocornuta from Lembeh, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is an interesting individual. This name Chromodoris rubrocornuta is assigned to this individual – with some hesitation – on the basis that the rhinophores and gills are reddish and the pigmented ‘tongues’ hardly extend across the central area of the mantle in comparison to Chromodoris fidelis, where they extend a considerable distance across the mantle. Typical Chromodoris rubrocornuta has a broad orange marginal band then a deep reddish band which broadens then narrows along its inner edge to give a red scalloped pattern. Inside that again is a narrow, opaque white line.
