Here is another sea slug from Jamaica. As I said in my first message, all specimens were collected from St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica, West Indies. Photo: R. Gundersen.
Here is Discodoris evelinae. Found under a rock in Thallassia bed at 2 m depth.
Identified by description from Marcus of Jamaican material. Upper image is a lighter coloured juvenile. Juveniles still have the two characteristic rows of irregular dark spots.

I have also added the photo from your message about Dendrodoris krebsii, where you mention this species' habit of breaking off pieces of its mantle edge when disturbed.
As i say there, Discodoris evelinae may well be the same as the Indo-West Pacific species Discodoris lilacina which is well-known for his habit of breaking off the mantle skirt when disturbed. One of the other names for that species is Discodoris fragilis in recognition of this behaviour. [See autotomy Page.]
