Dear Dr. Rudman,
I think the dorid from Tunisia is not Jorunna tomentosa but probably a species belonging to the genus Discodoris. It seems to me that could be Discodoris maculosa, Bergh 1877 or another species belonging to complex “maculosa-fragilis”.

I wasn't very confident in calling it Jorunna tomentosa and must admit the the row of ringed spots down the mantle midline did remind me of the Indo-West Pacific Discodoris lilacina. I have started a page for Atlantic Discodoris 'lilacina-fragilis' until we can get their identity resolved.
