Hello Dr. Rudman!!
This is a photo of the first specimen of Chromodoris marislae I found in Bahia de Banderas. In March I went deep diving because I had to practice some skills... any ways, I came across this specimen at 187 feet of depth, in Los Arcos, Bahia de Banderas. It was within a little crevice. The water temperature at depth was 67oF.
As far as I know this is a pretty big range extension (south and deep wise). I think it will be interesting to see if I find more specimens of this species and the depths at which they are living in Bahia de Banderas.

This photo shows the very bushy gills of this species, quite unlike other species of Chromodoris.
