Aphelodoris varia - mating pair

January 6, 2003
From: Iain Whyte

Hi Dr Rudman,
I thought you might be interested in this image of a pair of Aphelodoris varia I photographed today [December, 2002] at Bare Island (La Perouse), Sydney, NSW. They were in calm water at about 9 metres, hiding under a slight ledge - hence the reason I couldn't get a better angle to avoid the sponge thats in the way.

Thanks again for this splendid resource.
Iain Whyte
