My! I thought I had this Glossodoris sp 4 all buttoned up after seeing hundreds upon hundreds. They prefer deeper water. Now, I find one in a couple of centimeters and ... it got an overdose of yellow colouring to its mantle edge. Maybe that is what “befuddled” its brain!

Don't despair, I think your probably have Glossodoris sp. 4 'buttoned up'. I suspect this is something different. Lindsay Warren has also sent photos of this animal which I am calling Glossodoris sp. 12.
