Comment from Richard Willan on photo #32175
This is an unusual individual with pointed-conical tubercles instead of rounded tubercles, so it might be a different species.

An atypical individual because it is so colourful.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #1887
This seems to now be a colour form of Dendrodoris tuberculosa.

PLEASE CHECK WITH RCWILLAN - he has identified this as tuberculosa........

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #13871
An atypical individual with only a few pustules on the dorsum and thin, raised ridges connecting them together.
