Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2272
This species is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea characterised by the large chocolate blotches on the upper surface of the mantle. It is placed in the genus Discodoris as many times as Peltodoris and no firm decision as to which genus is best has been arrived at so far.
