Chromodoris cf. strigata from Solomons

Dear Bill
I notice that there are a couple like this on your species list which may be a colour form of Chromodoris colemani. If so this find would add to its distribution. I found this on a mixed rubble site at about 8 meters, just on the outskirts of Honiara, Solomon Islands.

Dear Bruce,
There are a number of species with orange and black longitudinal lines. In some cases I think the black lines are replaced with orange lines in some individuals. This photo of yours looks more like the animal from Japan I have temporarily labelled Chromodoris cf. strigata.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
