We were excited to discover two specimens of Mexichromis kempfi (previously described as Chromodoris kempfi ) on a reef in Cozumel, Mexico. This record extends the range of this branch to the Western Caribbean.
Locality: Villa Blanca Reef, Cozumel Island, 15 metres, Quintana Roo, Mexicon, Caribbean, 12 August 2006, coral reef. Length: 20 mm. Photographer: Jim Lyle.
The observed trailing behavior, as previously reported by Anne Dupont and Andres Ahrens, adds to data grouping this branch with other known "trailers" (species of Risbecia and Hypselodoris paulinae ).

Thanks for these great photos. With earlier records from Panama and Colombia, its certainly seems to occur throughout the Caribbean and down into Brazil. It would be good if someone would re-examine its anatomy.
