Photographed by: Color Chen
An unusual colour form from Thailand with large black spots on the dorsum (usually only black speckles in Hypselodoris sagamiensis
) and a row of large gold spots submarginally Usually there are only fine traces of yellow, or no yellow at all, submarginally in Hypselodoris sagamiensis
). But the red rhinophores and gills are characteristic of Hypselodoris sagmiensis.
This individual has suffered a major injury to the middle of its dorsum, but it has survived and repaired itself.
This small chromodorid nudibranch is characterised by the low opaque white pustules on the central mantle, and by the broad blue marginal band or series of blue dashes, with some orange markings submarginally. This is an atypical individual without any dark smudges/spots on the central mantle.
