Your posting of Hypselodoris maridadilus & H. mouaci etc. was most illuminating! Attached you will find two (2) pics of what I believe to be
Hypselodoris maridadilus based on that posting. Both animals were photographed at Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia in October '98. If so, it would seem to represent a significant range extension for this species. Apologize in advance for the quality of both photographs. If I had known what I was dealing with at the time, greater pains would have been taken at the photography end!

Your description of my comments being "illuminating" reminds me of an old joke about how some people use statistics: "much like a drunk uses a lamp post - more for support than illumination!"
In fact your photos don't give much support to my suggestion. One of your photos (TOP RIGHT) certainly looks like H.maridadilus, with no white on the gills and rhinophores, but its a bit hard to ignore the white-tipped rhinophores in the other photo (LOWER RIGHT), which would fit Nathalie Yonow's H. centunculus. All I can say at this stage is I think we need some more photos.
Thanks for starting the ball rolling,
