Linda Colman Black Margined Glossodoris. Raja Ampat, West Papua. Sony DSC-TX7, 1/200s, focal 4.4mm, f/3.5, ISO 125.

Ron Silver Glossodoris sibogae

Ron Silver Any other photos showing entire dorsal surface? As dark brown as this appears, I have suggested G. sibogae rather than G. atromarginata.

Patricia Perret I think that it is Glossodoris atromarginata Ron Silver

Ron Silver Deep yellowish/brown body color is indicative of G. sibogae while light yellow to tan body is indicative of G. atromarginata.

Ron Silver Patricia, Here's a photo of G. atromarginata: http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/glosatro

Patricia Perret This picture is a little bit overexposed so te white margin close to the black one is difficult to see well. The gills are very black http://www.nudipixel.net/species/glossodoris_atromarginata/
