Eubranchus mandapamensis (Rao, 1968)

We saw several of these in the Tulamben area. These are similar in shape to Eubranchus ocellatus and E. sp. b056 and in some characters the species seem to blend together. This group could use some DNA work to try to determine if they all belong to a single variable species.

Several specimens were unusual in that they had lavender rings near the top of the cerata rather than blue, and the dots within those rings were less distinct. However, they do have the bumpy rhinophores of Eubranchus mandapamensis.
