Concerning message #21885:
To accompany mw earlier message [#21886], here are the other animals I think are color forms of Cyerce pavonina. I have this species currently figured on the Marshall Islands nudibranchs website as Cyerce sp. e479.
Locality: Kwajalein Atoll, 5-10m, Marshall Islands, Pacific, 15 and 22 July 2002, Coral reef, under rocks. Length: 40mm. Photographer: Jeanette Johnson.

Thanks for these. The inside of the cerata seem to be very characteristic. I have been looking at an earlier photo from South Africa [message #1047] which I have on the Forum as Cyerce sp. 2, and I am pretty sure it is also C. pavonina. The darker animal in your upper photo seems to be an intermediate between the Sth African animal and the more 'typical' yellow-brown animals.
