Comment from the photographer: Although there are two species in the photo, I thought it would be important to post this as it is an anomalous situation. It's a Chromodoris krohni (with the right rhinophore missing) mating with a Chromodoris purpurea. There were several C. krohni individuals in the vicinity (at least 5 in a 1m radius) and a couple of C. purpurea so I really don't understand why this "odd couple" dicided to mate.
