Chromodoris aspersa from Myanmar

Hi Bill,
I think this is Chromodoris aspersa. I photographed it at Western Rocky, Mergui Archipelago, Andaman Sea, Myanmar on Feb. 25, 2003.

Length of notum: 20mm.

Best regards,
Mary Jane

Thanks Mary Jane,
Despite the lack of a yellow border I agree this is most likely to be C. aspersa. The pale 'washy purple' ring around each purple spot is very characteristic of this species.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
