Hypselodoris sp. a021

We saw several of these at a site called Secret Bay, and more at Murals and Red Palm. Similar in color to Hypselodoris infucata, they are easiest to distinguish by the morphology and coloration of the gills, which have flattened outer surfaces with a series of light-colored spots running from base to tip. These have at times been called H. kanga, but that species typically has dark lines instead of dark spots along with the yellow spots. These are probably something different. 25-35mm.

Mouth stretched out to feed on light purple sponge.
