Chromodoris tasmaniensis & C. epicuria in SE Australia

October 13, 1999
From: Bill Rudman

While preparing a photo by Geoff Avern of the relatively common southeastern Australian chromodorid Chromodoris tasmaniensis, I was somewhat embarrassed to realise I hadn't prepared a page on it. So here is one. It is one of the three common large red-spotted species in south-eastern Australia. It has two geographic colour forms, the one in New South Wales mimicking C. splendida, and the one further south in Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia mimicking C. epicuria, another species which I have just prepared a page for.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
