Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #25209
Recorded from the Red Sea, the pale orange markings centrally, as whell as the translucent patches are typical of C. strigata.

Note the characteristic dark grey central zone on the dorsum.

This individual has an atypical colour pattern, but the dark smudges connecting the major black lines across the mantle are still present, so is Chromodoris strigata.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #3703
By contrast, Chromodoris magnifica has a thin but well defined white band on the outermost edge of the mantle outside the golden band.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2266
A typical individual. Note the black longitudinal lines are connected by grey smudges and this is very characteristic of Chromodoris strigata.
