Polycera? from Marshall Ids

Hi Bill,

Attached are three pics of what I've been calling a Gymnodoris, although I haven't tried to verify that yet with a look at the anatomy. Looking at these three shots, it seems like the one figured in E386-2 could be different based on its rhinophore and gill coloration. So far, the several specimens I've seen have all been at Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. They're small, less then 20mm. Any ideas on these?



Dear Scott,
I am pretty sure this is a species of polycerid, perhaps even a species of Tambja.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
