A juvenile individual. This member of the Hypselodoris obscura species group is supposedly endemic to South Australia and the southern part of Western Australia. Note that the gills are oval (not triangular) in cross section.

Three typical adult individuals, two of which are mating reciprocally. Note the extraordinary size that the penis enlarges to when mating takes place.
