Comment from Richard Willan on photo #4554
This dorid nudibranch is characterised by the colouration of the gills – black (or at least black striped like this one) at the bases and orange-red at the ends.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #3677
A juvenile form. It is often very difficult to decide what species of chromodorid juveniles are because their colour pattern changes so much as they mature. I think this individual might be Chromodoris burni because of the multiple thin longitudinal black lines, blotchy-streaky orange marginal band and bluish background mantle colour.
