Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #17151
The slightly broken up orange edge and the white pattern on the dorsum are characteristic.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #11594
Yes, Glossodoris symmetrica. A fairly large specimen. The margins become frillier as the animal grows.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #15611
yes - often with a dotted-and-dashed margin in the Indian Ocean.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #798
Glossodoris symmetrica always also has blood-red rhinophores and gills like this photo. The blotches on the centre of the mantle (which are cream-coloured to almost dull yellow) are not quite as distinct at the edges as the white ones in Glossodoris pallida so they seem more like smudges than blotches, but nonetheless they are always present.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9224
It is unusual to find an individual with a pink background colour to the mantle. This individual also has a broader marginal band than is usual for this species.
