Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9104
This chromodorid is characterised by the translucent pinkish or bluish white mantle with a broad vivid sharply-defined yellow marginal band and no markings dorsally, or only a few nebulous reddish markings like smudges. Often the row of white mantle glands are visible through the translucent mantle, as are shown in this photo.
