Concerning John Dorsey's message. Wish I had a scan of B. strongi. Basically the external difference between B. strongi and B. californica is the texture of the notal surface, B. califonica being tuberculate, B. strongi is smooth. Also, B. californica has a thin white line along the margin of the mantle, which is lacking in B. strongi. Two color variations of each species are shown in Pacific Coast Nudibranchs.
