Chromodoris at Fly Point

From: David & Leanne Atkinson.

We found this at Fly Point, Port Stephens, New South Wales over Christmas. Can you please help? It has white body, white rhinophores and gills with an orange band around the body.

It is Chromodoris albonares which previously had only been recorded from Coffs Harbour, NSW and I have also found it in New Caledonia. The most distinctive feature is the abnormally large white rhinophore clubs.... Bill Rudman.
