Comment from Richard Willan on photo #22412
An undescribed species. This is certainly a Diaphorodoris sp. However, I am very confident in saying it is not Diaphorodoris mitsuii. This confidence comes both from seeing Diaphorodoris mitsuii in Taiwan myself and observing it has a golden marginal band on the mantle and thin red submarginal bands above and below that marginal band - which is quite unlike this species from temperate Australia, and also from knowing that in his checklist of opisthobranchs from Victoria Burn (2006: 18) has listed this species simply as Diaphorodoris sp. It is also known from Tasmania.

An undescribed species. Note the long tail with its sharp mid-dorsal ridge that characterises this genus.
