Comment from Terry Gosliner on photo #619
lacks the distinct black lines of A. minor

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #24743
This subspecies Aegires gardineri nigerrima appears only in the Maldives, and you can see the tubercles are smaller and fewer than in the nominal species occurring elsewhere.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #12898
Interesting pattern. It has some characteristics of both Aegires gardineri and Aegires minor, although I would lean towards Aegires gardineri.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #12899
Yes, I would call that Aegires gardineri. It is on its prey sponge in the photo.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2435
An extremely dark individual but identifiable as Aegires gardineri by the black blotches (instead of lines) on the sides of the foot. In this photo the rhinophores are visible – note that they are completely smooth. Amongst dorid nudibranchs, the Aegiridae is almost the only family to have completely smooth rhinophores.
