Dear Dr. Rudman,
Here are two Chromodoris that I think they are C. baumanni. What do you think? I found them under a rock (20ft) at Cousins, Santiago Is, Galápagos Ids. They where laying eggs.
I hope you found this interesting.

Thanks for this interesting photo. It helps record the colour variation in this species and is the first egg mass I have seen of this species. I have included a close-up alongside of the gills of one of your animals as it shows that at least in larger animals the gills are triangular in cross-section. You can see a red-speckled smooth outer face on each gill. This is not apparent on many of the photos on the Forum. [see Alicia Hermosillo's photos.]
