Note added 3 February 2005: This has been named Dendrodoris azineae

Dear Bill,
Since sending my message Dave Behrens has gotten back to me and confirmed that it is what I thought it was. He also mentioned that George Spalding and Peter Bruegemann at Scripps have seen it in Scripps Canyon at about the same depth and that it is now known from 3 locations.

One more thing. The original specimen was apparently lost. Anybody seeing the animal may wish to collect one for Dave Behrens so that it can be described for science.
