Chromodoris verrieri from Nelson Bay

Hi Bill,
I have attached another animal that I am unsure of its ID. The species was found at Little Beach, Nelson Bay, [Port Stephens, NSW, Australia] on the wharf pylons in November 2002.

I first thought it was Chromodoris daphne. but it is lacking the customary red spots on the body. I now think it is Chromodoris verrieri. Would this ID be correct?

Yes Des,
I think this is Chromodoris verrieri. It's not a common visitor down the New South Wales coast, but then it doesn't seem to be the most common species in its normal tropical haunts either.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
