Blue Hypselodoris cf bullocki

April 17, 2000
From: Ken Sullivan

Hi Bill,
I am another of those mad underwater photographers who have a liking for sea slugs and butterfly fish. I was recently talking to Lindsay from Operation Wallacea and mentioned that I had a slide of a Hypselodoris bullockii (colour variation) taken under the 'Rig' in Mabul Malaysia. She said you might be interested in seeing a scan which I have attached.

Dear Ken,
I am indeed interested in your scan of this blue animal. More records of particular colour patterns are useful in getting an idea of how constant certain colour forms/ species are.

Other photos of other nudibranchs would be equally welcome.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
