Here is another message concerning the white and purple-spotted chromodorids described from Hawaii by Pease and Garrett. In this one I post the original illustration of Chromodoris vibrata.
Doris vibrata was originally described (Pease, 1860) without an illustration. Bergh (1880: Pl. B, fig 18- 21) subsequently published a painting by Andrew Garrett, which we assume was available to Pease.
It is characterised by the rythmically vibrating gills, commented on by Pease, and on which he based its name.
