Chromodoris dianae

February 14, 2003
From: Mark Burnett

Hi Bill,
The Forum continues to impress. I had labelled the accompanying slide as Chromodoris lochi until I saw the message from Richard Houghton. I had based this ID on Debelius' book which shows two pictures on the C. lochi page. The right image is C. lochi but the left image is C. dianae which is not represented in the book. As you mention in your review page, this book has it's shortcomings though it has many superb photographs which aid in identifying nudibranchs when one is out of one's usual dive location.
Best regards,
Mark Burnett

Thanks Mark,
Can I have some locality information to go with the photo please. Is this from your trip to Mabul, Borneo, in October 2002?
