Another remarkable phyllidiid mimic, reported by Michael Miller in his message below. In this case the dorid is probably best described as a Phyllidia mimic. Compare with Discodoris? liturata, a Phyllidiella mimic. There is also a general mimicry page where flatworm and chromodorid mimics of phyllidiids are described.
