Goniodoris joubini? from Japan.

July 30, 2002
From: Jun Imamoto

Dear Bill.
I went diving at Wakasa Bay, Echizen-coast, Japan on July 10. I found this sea slug for the first time in this place. I think it is perhaps a species of Goniodoris, perhaps Goniodoris joubini? I would be very happy if you could comment.

Date: 10 July 2002
place: Echizen-coast Wakasa Bay, Japan
size: about 18mm
depth: 4 m
temperature: 23 C

Best Regards,
Jun Imamoto

Dear Jun,
I am pretty sure this is the dark form of G. joubini which used to be caled G. glabra in Japan.
Best wishes,
