Dear Dr.Rudman,
Here is perhaps a better photo of Glossodoris misakinosibogae. The dull gray spots you asked about in the photo I sent earlier are little bits of mud caught up in the mucus on the slug's back.

Dear Nishina,
I was puzzled by the spots as I had not seen them mentioned by anyone before. Thanks for clarifying the mystery.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
