Chromodoris sp e248

This apparently undescribed Chromodoris resembles Chromodoris elisabethina, but lacks the blue color and wide light orange margin of that species. It also has some resemblance to Chromodoris lochi, which we have seen in the Solomons and which we're quite sure is a different species. Only three specimens have been found, all measuring 20mm in length and all in ledges at night on an Enewetak Atoll lagoon pinnacle.
