Here is an image of Doto kya (in Magnesium chloride). In contrast to the sympatric D. columbiana, the pigment on the body of D. kya is darker and does not occur on the foot. Compared to my earlier images, this one should better represent this species on its factsheet.

Thanks for a perfect example of this species. We might add that some specimens of Doto columbiana have a thin dark line circling each tubercle on the cerata.
