Chromodoris vibrata from Okinawa

From: Bob Bolland

Hi Bill,
Following Scott Johnson's recent message on the Forum, I thought I'd add yet another image of Chromodoris vibrata, which will add Okinawa to its known distribution.
RFB # 2957. TL: 24mm. 3m, on a live stony coral reef at the edge of the reef drop-off.
Horseshoe Cliffs, Okinawa (26°30.0'N, 127°50.9'E) 24 April 1992.
This is the only record I have of it from Okinawa.

Thanks Bob,
Bill Rudman
