Phyllidia mimics again

July 3, 1999
From: Erwin Koehler

attached 2 photos by Georg Heinze: Thailand, Similan Is., March 1999, size unknown. Colour-variants or different species?


Dear Erwin,
I think they are both what I am calling here Doris? sp. 2. One seems to have more yellow than usual and the other less than usual, but the black lines and arrangement of tubercles seem to be constant.

Bill Rudman.
