More on Chromodoris sp. 1

Regarding the message and photo of the Guam and Palau Chromodoris sp. 1 from Clay Carlson: I can't help with an id, but I have what appears to be the same species here in the Marshall Islands. I've seen a dozen or more specimens at Kwajalein and Enewetak, usually under rocks or in small caves at depths of 5-20 meters. Its surface texture made me think initially that it might be a Dendrodorid, but it has a typical Chromodoris radula and reproductive system. There's some color variation; I'd have to do some more scanning, but I can send more pictures if anyone's interested.

Thanks Scott,
I'm interested in seeing some more variation, if you have the time.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
