Diaphorodoris sp. from Victoria, Australia
Identification verified by Richard Willan

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. This is certainly a Diaphorodoris sp. However, I am very confident in saying it is not Diaphorodoris mitsuii. This confidence comes both from seeing Diaphorodoris mitsuii in Taiwan myself and observing it has a golden marginal band on the mantle and thin red submarginal bands above and below that marginal band - which is quite unlike this species from temperate Australia, and also from knowing that in his checklist of opisthobranchs from Victoria Burn (2006: 18) has listed this species simply as Diaphorodoris sp. It is also known from Tasmania.
