Ardeadoris egretta from Pohnpei

Hi Bill,

Another species we ran across on a recent trip to Pohnpei, eastern Caroline Islands, is Ardeadoris egretta. We had also observed this species there a few years ago. The attached photo, by Jeanette Johnson, shows one of the two approximately 80mm specimens observed this time around. This is another species we have not yet encountered in the Marshall Islands.

The known distribution of this beautiful animals continues to expand.
