Re: Hypselodoris bullockii? & H. apolegma mating

Concerning message #20968:

Hello Bill,

You were wondering about the 'red spotted' form of H. bullocki on the forum in your answer, and maybe you mean the species/photos that we have send in, message #19423. You have put it 'aside' as Hypselodoris sp.11. They look very much the same.

Regards,
Reindert and Mieke

Dear Reindert & Mieke,

It's not the photo I had in mind but Hypselodoris sp. 11 certainly seems to be the same. Clearly this 'H. bullocki group' is in need of a lot more study - and I don't think just naming some of the obvious colour forms as new species - is going to be the answer.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
