Information on Hypselodoris bullocki

October 6, 1999
From: Sophia Philipp

Dear Bill,
I have seen a nudibranch at Flinders Reef, Brisbane that seems to resemble C. bullocki (Neville Coleman's Nudibranchs of the South Pacific,1989). If you have any more information or other photos of it I would appreciate them. It may also help me to be able to distinguish it from other similarly coloured beasties if there are any.

Thank you,
Sophia Philipp

Dear Sophia,
The species is at present placed in the genus Hypselodoris rather than Chromodoris and there is a page for it, with most of the colour 'variants' already there. Also look below your message on this page for earlier messages about this species.

If you are looking for things in the Forum use the bottom (black) row of buttons on the navigation bar at the top of the page, or the list at the bottom of each page. Alternatively use the Search the Forum button which is either in the yellow bar at the top of each message or in the list at the bottom of the page.

If you have any other questions, or photos of some of your finds to share with us, please send them in. Even if we have a species illustrated already, I welcome further photos which help to show colour variation, new locality information or some biological fact like food, eggs etc.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
