Chromodoris baumanni from the Sea of Cortez

Hi Bill,

I enjoyed Jeff Goddard's photos of Eastern Pacific chromodorids recently posted. The Sea of Cortez certainly has some spectacular species. Attached are three shots of another species, Chromodoris baumanni, showing a bit of variation in color. The LOWER RIGHT photo shows it on what appears to be a prey sponge. These animals were all in the 50-60mm range and were photographed at depths of 3-5 meters near Bahia de Concepcion in the Sea of Cortez.

Dear Scott,
Thanks for the photos. The last few days have certainly brought a wonderful collection of chromodorids and other dorids from the East Pacific and the Caribbean.
Bill Rudman.
