Dendrodoris limbata - colour variation

From: Constantine Mifsud

I am posting a photo with the two extreme forms of Dendrodoris limbata from the Mediterranean. These two forms from Malta were found a few metres apart from the same area at 1m depth.

Thanks Constantine,
By coincidence your message arrived the day I was posting Angel Valdes's message concerning a second record of this species on the Atlantic coast of France. Some of these species of Dendrodoris are certainly very variable in colour.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
