Comment from Richard Willan on photo #30960
This is a very pale individual so that the submarginal bluish band immediately inside the thin marginal black band is almost invisible.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #4304
This chromodorid nudibranch is recognised by the pale mantle with small brown spots, by a blue submarginal band in addition to the black marginal band, and by the whitish gills with black or brown lines up both axes. This image from Vietnam represents a significant new locality range for this rare species. Presently it is known with certainty from Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu, and potentially also from South Africa.
