Mystery slug from Indonesia

October 29, 2000
From: Marli Wakeling

Dear Bill
This was found on a night dive in Flores, Indonesia in 1999. I think it might be a Sea Hare, but have had no luck in finding a reference. I was wondering if it might be a juvenile Spanish Dancer, as some large specimens were found in the same area.

Dear Marli,
This is neither a Sea Hare nor a juvenile Spanish Dancer. It is in fact a very specialised relative of Chromodoris and Hypselodoris called Ceratosoma tenue
Best wishes
