Hypselodoris from SE Sulawesi

April 22, 1998
From: Lindsay Warren

Dear Bill
Here is a Hypselodoris for you. Unfortunately I have no details as to the exact nature of the surface on which they were found but they were also part of those found in the Tukang Besi Islands in SE Sulawesi last October. Looking forward to your comments on these. The opisthobranch species count for this area is now 70 and growing.
Many thanks for your help.
All the best
Lindsay Warren

This looks to be a fairly typical specimen of Hypselodoris maculosa. Up to three red bands on the rhinophores are quite characteristic. Another name that used to be given to this species is Hypselodoris decorata.
