Chromodoris africana? from South Africa

August 10, 2007
From: Colin Ogden

Hi Bill,
I have a creature which I originally assumed to be a Chromodoris africana, but on downloading appears to be different enough to query.

Locality: Sodwana Bay, 22 metres, South Africa, Indian, 31 October 2006, Reef. Length: 20 mm. Photographer: Colin Ogden.

best regards

Dear Colin,
I am pretty sure this is a juvenile C. africana.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
