Atagema osseosa from sthn Queensland, Australia

In January, I went to Alex Headland and turned over some rocks and found this beautiful little dorid. I think it is Atagema osseosa. When I initially found it I thought it was a lamellariid. I collected it and while it was crawling I knew it was a dorid.

Thanks for the nice photos. They show the tubercles, with a crown of spicules around the tip, very well. For those of you not familiar with the term, these tubercles are known as caryophyllidia.
