I would like to know whether this Glossodoris sp has been named. It is found very commonly on our coast. This is a huge specimen. Normally they are half this size.
Locality: South Coast KwaZulu/Natal - SOUTH AFRICA. Near Port Shepstone, Rocky reef, 15 m, October 1999, 40mm long.
I have found it in Gosliner, T. 1987 NUDIBRANCHS OF SOUTHERN AFRICA. Sea Challengers, page 85, specimen 137 Glossodoris sp 4.

I'm pretty sure Terry hasn't described this species as yet. He has reviewed the species of Chromodoris from his book (Gosliner, 1994), but like all of us I am sure he has a backlog of interesting things still to get to.
