Hypselodoris obscura from Jervis Bay

April 2, 2001
From: Des Paroz

Hi Bill
A mate and I were having a dive today at The Docks, Jervis Bay [southern new South Wales, Australia], and we came across this nudi. Depth was about 16m, and was found on boulders to the side of the wall. Water temp was 22C. The photo is actually Kevin Withnall's, but since he's got a digital uw camera, I thought we'd get the posting straight up.

I think it might be Hypselodoris obscura. Can you confirm this for me?

Best regards
