Photographed by: Graham Abbott

Richard Willan: Dermatobranchus phyllodes is characterised externally by the deep dorsal ridges that are almost perpendicular to the mantle edge, giving the dorsum a distinctly leaf-like appearance. Some individuals, but not all of them, are pale green on the dorsum. There is also a broad U- or V-shaped marking on the anterior third of the dorsum. The oral veil is opaque white with dark spots along the front margin and a pale orange edge.
