Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #21642
Larger and darker purple spots than is usual in the species.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #11580
Yes, Chromodoris aspersa, a rather brightly colored specimen.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #5598
This is an unusual individual for two reasons – there seems to be hardly any orange marginal band or none at all and the gill pinnae (not the axes) have purple spots. Either this individual is atypical, or all the individuals from Myanmar are like this. Hopefully Jeffrey Davies has some more photos of other individuals.
