For comparison with the other NE Pacific species of Doto, here are a few images of Doto kya.
Locality: North Cove, Cape Arago, Oregon, USA. Pacific coast. Intertidal. Length: 10 mm. May 1980. Rocky shore. Photographer: Jeff Goddard
The images, while of poor quality, do show the larger number of cerata, especially compared to Doto columbiana, and also just barely show a few of the opaque white bodies observed in the rhinophores and rhinophore sheaths of this species. The photo of Doto kya in Dave Behrens' Pacific Coast Nudibranchs shows these traits much better, and I hope that someone submits to the Forum a much better photo of this species to replace mine.

Thanks again for these photos. I hope we are not boring those not interested in Doto from the west coast of Nth America, but it will be very valuable to have these species sorted out.
