Hypselodoris violabranchia from Hawaii

Hi Bill,

Attached are three shots of another Hawaiian Hypselodoris. I've seen H. violabranchia in scattered locations around Oahu, Hawaii, generally wandering about in the open alone or in pairs at depths of 5 to 15 meters. The animals tend to be pretty small, but I think I've seen them up to about 20mm long. The longitudinal white streaks on its body resemble those on a couple of other Hawaiian Hypselodoris species, H. andersoni (= H. peasei) and H. insulana.
