The mantle glands arranged around the margin are clearly visible in this photo (as white beads).

Interesting, one of 2 photos of all-white annulata.

All white??

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #25208
Interesting with so few spots - the link between normal and all-white annulata?

Unusual for the Persian Gulf. Usually they have the two rings linked or broken up.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #13689
A very interesting photo showing individuals of two colour forms side by side. The form without any golden spots (represented by the larger individual) is very uncommon.

The Red Sea I am always happy with! This is Chromodoris annulata Eliot, 1904. Found in the Red Sea and western Indian ocean.
