Dear Bill,
My wife Chikako found this animal. I tried to find information in other Japanese
sea slug site but I can find only a little. Most of them were mixed up with C. orientalis. So C. tumulifera should be considered to be very rare in Japan.

Date: 16 Aug. 2002
Loc: Echizen coast, Fukui prif. Japan
Lengh: 20mm
Depth: 4m
Water temp: 28C degree

Thanks Nishina,
It's nice to get some photos from the northern part of its range,
