Here's another new species for me from Alicia's visit. I think this one is Diaphorodoris lirulatocauda but these small white fuzzy dorids are confusing to me.
Locality: Monterey, 15 meters, CA, USA, Pacific, 20 May 2007, Shale Beds off of Del Monte Beach. Length: 3-5 mm

Yes - this is the tiny white dorid with the really difficult scientific name. We can blame Sandra Millen for that.
The key characteristics for this species are the tall thin papillae on the dorsun and the very long, by dorid standards, rhinophores, white encrustations on them.
My best as usual,
Diaphorodoris lirulatocauda from the Yellow Sea, Korea
