Known only from Yucatan, Mexico, Gulf of Mexico.

This looks quite like Chromodoris regalis but the purple coloration on the gills and rhinophores and the spots around the mantle edge look rather different. There also seems to be a purplish coloration on the posterior part of the foot which is also different.Authorship details
