Aldisa ? from Taiwan

April 12, 2006
From: Ching-Yao Chan

Dear Bill,

I do not know which species this is ?  Is it Chromodorididae ?
Hope that you can help,

Locality: Kenting, 12 metres, Taiwan, 16 May 2005, Coral Reef. Length: 40 mm. Photographer: C.Y.Chan.

Best wishes,

Dear Ching-Yao,
I am pretty sure this is a species of Aldisa, although I  can't see any sign of the dorsal 'pits' these animals normally have on their mantle. This animal looks quite similar to one from Atsushi Ono [see message #784] which I am calling Aldisa sp. 1.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
