Chromodoris conchyliata from Myanmar

March 20, 2003
From: Mary Jane Adams

Hi Bill,
I guess this is Chromodoris conchyliata. It looks a little like Chromodoris geometrica but the colors are all wrong. I also photographed a C. geometrica on this dive which was very typical of the species.

Length: 20mm,
Divesite: Black Rock, an islet in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Myanmar.
Date: Feb. 26, 2003.

Best regards,
Mary Jane

Dear Mary Jane,
This is Chromodoris conchyliata. Its colour pattern is a nice intermediate between one from the Maldives I am posting today, and a photo from Thailand, with small yellow spots, which I tentatively identified as this species some time ago.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
