Ron Silver I've seen some very spirited discussions as to the ID of this nudi - Chromodoris collingwoodi vs. Chromodoris aureopurpurea?

Henry Jager Hi Ron I was doubtless about, but pergaps because I didn't kow aureopirpurea ;-) I'll have a closer look at it today! What's your opinion?

Henry Jager Hi Ron Regarding the regular yellow spots (in one line) along the mantles border and the "warty" surface, I propose it's a collingwoodi.

Fabio Strazzi cool

Alberto Carati Nice selective focus.

Diana Schmitt Well deserved! :) I still just love this image Henry!
