Concerning message #22163:
Here is another specimen for which we need your contribution for identification, it has been suspected to be Baptodoris cinnabarina but I'm not convinced.
Locality: Antibes, 35 m, France, Mediterranee, December 2008. Length: 3 cm. Photographer: Gilles Cavignaux.
Thanks for help
bielecki, S., 2009 (Feb 13) Baptodoris cinnabarina ? from French Mediterranean. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/22174
Note added 2 March 2009: This is possibly Discodoris rosi. See message #22302.
I am not an expert on Mediterranean species but I think Baptodoris cinnabarina is supposed to have whitish rhinophores. Your animal has traces of a median ridge on the mantle and the rhinophore and gills pockets are bordered with a whitish pattern, so it could be Carminodoris boucheti.
Hopefully someone with knowledge of the Mediterranean fauna can help us identify your animal.
