Edoardo Spacca SS Liberty, Tulamben, Bali Sea&Sea DX2G, 2xInon z240, FIT diopter 5x 1/500, F5.2, ISO100 and for the name, i'm very bad and dont have a taxonomy of nudis, so if anyone wants to chip in i'd be delighted... :-)

Massimo Corea chromodoris kuniei

Edoardo Spacca grazie!!!!

Roy Arthur David Lontoh I would say both are Risbecia tryoni ;)

Edoardo Spacca well, funny enough it seems there is little ambiguity as on some pics on the web it is also classified as chromodoris leopard.....

Orietta Rivolta Chromodoris leopardus has the black spots are quite large and several of them are hollow. By contrast, Risbecia tryoni would have more numerous smaller black spots with no white centres.

Ken Thongpila I would say Risbecia tryoni as well... I saw them in Tulamben too. Nice shot with 2 together :-)

Ashley Missen They are Risbecia tryoni - Chromodoris leopardus has dark circles not spots - nice double front shot - Cheers Ash

Rosa Taberner Chromodoris kuniei laying eggs, in Lembeh strait. Canon G11, no lenses.

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Wow! Lucky you :)

Ashley Missen Risbecia tryoni -- Garrett 1873 -- Nice Shot

Rosa Taberner Thanks

Arantxa Di Mare And...could not be Risbecia tryoni ??? :)

Ashley Missen OK let see http://www.nudipixel.net/species/risbecia_tryoni/ vs http://www.nudipixel.net/species/chromodoris_kuniei/ the only other on apart from Risbecia tryoni it could be is is Chromodoris lepordus but they have rings not dots - definately Risbecia tyroni

Arantxa Di Mare Sorry..I haven't read Ashely's note and I have written incorretly my note....I agree with Ashley and I think that it could be Risbecia tryoni

Gary Cobb This is Resbecia tryoni

Camille Lemmens Chromodoris Kuniei Soraya. Gili Meno, Indonesia Canon IXY DIGITAL 25 IS, f/8, 1/60, Iso 80, build in flash

Eric van Andel Nice find Camille! Next time take some extra pics playing with F (up to F=16 or so) and shutterspeed (up to 1/160)... You will get a better DOF and the nudi will be more sharp.....

Camille Lemmens Thanks for the tip

Eric van Andel That's what this group is for.... helping each other ;-}
