This specimen was found by Dean Lea at 4pm on 7 July 1999 at a depth of 15m on filamentous algae on the lip of some dead foliose coral on Pulau Kaledupa [Tukang Besi Archipelago, SE Sulawesi, Indonesia - Operation
Wallacea]. Size: 5 mm.
The notum is pale cream with a bright blue marginal band to the mantle which is speckled with white. Along the notum running down its length are thin broken white lines interspersed with dark blue patches. The foot which is a pale bluey lilac features random blue spots along the foot. The rhinophores are lamellate, white with one horizontal orange band in the middle. The gills are translucent and white with a hint of orange.
Although it looked very similar to both Hypselodoris capensis and H. carnea,
the rhinophore bands did not match. What do you think it might be?
All the best

It is what we are calling Hypselodoris cf. maculosa for want of a better name. Terry Gosliner thinks it is a colour form of Hypselodoris maculosa and he may be right but I would like to see some anatomical evidence. See also the page showing the Chromodoris decora Colour Group.
