Mexichromis from California

Hi Bill

Here are 2 shots of Mexichromis porterae to add to your Mexichromis spp. The scans are kind of low resolution, and you may have to fiddle with the contrast for best color. Both were shot off California's Channel Islands.

Thanks Scott,
It's quite a coincidence that your photos have arrived at the same time as I am posting Roberto Moresco's photos of Hypselodoris messinensis from the Mediterranean, where, as I am sure you know, there is another, somewhat bigger collection of blue chromodorids with yellow markings. It's good to hear from you.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
