Also known as: Glossodoris undarum
Photographed by: Chris Cunnold
The yellow rhinophores and red gills are diagnostic.
Possibly a faint undaurun? This species is now widespread in the western Indian Ocean.
There are several species in this colour group of Glossodoris with large white blotches/pustules on the dorsum (i.e., Glossodoris undaurum
, Glossodoris tomsmithi
, plus some unnamed species), but Glossodoris undaurum
alone is characterised by the golden-yellow band at the edge of the mantle and foot, and by the thin red lines on the axes of the gills. Glossodoris undaurum
seems to extend all through the Indian Ocean.
