Hypselodoris ghiselini from the Sea of Cortez

Hi Bill,

The Sea of Cortez species Hypselodoris ghiselini is one of those with background coloration so dark it seems to suck up the light from a strobe. Specimens seem to range from very dark blue to black, scattered with yellow spots. These individuals, about 25-30mm in length, were photographed at a depth of about 5 meters at Punta Chivato, on the Baja side of the Gulf of California.

Bill Rudman.
