I was surveying a new intertidal site for nudibranchs this morning and found this specimen of Baptodoris mimetica. I thought these images would complement your presentation of the similar looking, but unrelated Doriopsilla albopunctata and D. gemela.
Locality: Ragged Point, San Luis Obispo County, California, USA. Length: 25 mm. 25 May 2005. Rocky shore, low intertidal pool. Photographer: Jeff Goddard
In years past I wouldn't have given this animal a second look, thinking it was just another Doriopsilla albopunctata. I am certainly grateful for the efforts of all you taxonomists in delineating species like these, and in this particular instance, Terry Gosliner.

It's nice to complete the trio
