Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #30318
note part of Hypselodoris nigrostriata behind! How tiny is Aegires in comparison.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2245
This photo of an individual crawling shows the gills nicely. Often aegirids are reluctant to expose their gills.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1258
An atypical individual with a lot of orange and hardly any white or pink on the mantle.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #738
A typical individual. Note the smooth rhinophores without any elaboration, which are characteristic of the Aegiridae and unique among dorids. Note that the spelling Aegiridae is correct for this family (Aegiretidae is an incorrect spelling).
