Here's another nudibranch I've been wondering about. The photo was taken on November 27, 1998 at Agincourt Reef (Great Barrier Reef) at a depth of 5m. The animal was approx. 5cm long. To me it looks like a Glossodoris atromarginata (which I know quite well from Sydney) with the black margin (and black gills) missing. Is it just an unusual colour form of this species?
Thanks for your help,

No I don't think it is a colour form of G. atromarginata. I think it is almost certainly an unnamed species. Any specimens would be welcome.
