This is Carminodoris bifurcata Baba, 1993 from Osezaki, Izu Peninsula, Japan. It is an uncommon species at Osezaki. I found it on a length of rope on a sandy bottom. It has many warts on mantle,the roots of warts are fringed with white colour. And gill coloured orange.
Length 20mm; Depth 17m; night dive, October 2002.
Thanks for this information and your other message on Carminodoris armata. It is very helpful in sorting out this group of 'warty' dorids.
