Note from Scott Johnson: Known only from Enewetak and Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands. It is orange red with a wide white margin. Both the anterior and posterior ends of the mantle have a rather narrow deep orange-red margin and equally narrow yellow submargin. The rhinophore lamellae and branchial pinnae are irregularly edged with white. Its radula makes it a typical Chromodoris, and it's one of the species whose egg masses always have an orange extra-capsular yolk body adjacent to each ovum.
