Here's a gymnodorid that doesn't follow the Orange Spotted Rule. These are always translucent white and covered with rounded warts. I've found them at Enewetak and Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands, usually crawling about on hard substrates on lagoon pinnacles at night. They ranged from 10 to 20mm and one in captivity tried to eat Hypselodoris maculosa and Dendrodoris nigra. It did not succeed, possibly because the prey were too large.

It certainly breaks the orange colour rule. Nice to see it from the other end of the Pacific. I have records from Madagascar and tropical eastern Australia which suggests a wide Indo-West pacific distribution.
