Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2662
One of the few tropical species of Doto to be identifiable, Doto ussi has the large flattened pustules on its cerata clustered into tight bunches that cover the whole back. The head and body are brown and speckled with white. Most importantly, Doto ussi lives only on the stinging hydroid Aglaophenia cupressina.
