I found a strange chromodorid. It is similar to Chromodoris tinctoria, but there are purple and yellow spots on the inside edge of a mantle and foot.
At Kerama Is. near Okinawa in Japan.
10m depth on rock.
About 60mm long.
Is this C. tinctoria?

Foe some years I have been building up anatomical information on the different 'species' with a 'tinctoria-like colour pattern. While most show no anatomical differences, there are a few, like this one that are clearly distinct. I have some other photos of this species on the Forum as Chromodoris sp. 10.
