Comment from Terry Gosliner on photo #4910
What is cool is there is also another chromodorid next to it that looks like an undescribed Thorunna that we have found in Madagascar.

This photo shows the raised pocket around the gills clearly.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1869
Though it is not well shown in this photo, this species is one of the group of Hypselodoris with a raised branchial pocket. Its pattern of longitudinal lines mimics that of the Chromodoris quadricolor species group (i.e., Chromodoris quadricolor, Chromodoris elisabethina, Chromodoris hamiltoni, etc), but it is not closely related to this species group.
