Pink colour form

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #18598
yes, the mantle glands around the margin and red rhinophores and gills are diagnostic.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2410
This is a really important photo because it shows the distinction between Noumea laboutei (top yellow animal) and N. verconiforma (lower yellow animal) cannot be maintained any longer. Since they are together one must conclude these two individuals are colour forms of the same species.
