Discodoris coerulescens Bergh, 1888

This is a 22mm individual found at Enewetak Atoll, under dead coral at a depth of 6 meters on a southeastern lagoon pinnacle. We have also seen at least three specimens on lagoon reefs at Kwajalein Atoll.

The specimen in the two photos below were found on a Kwajalein Atoll lagoon pinnacle on 26 June 2010. It looks intermediate with specimens we are tentatively calling Discodoris ylva, so it is possible that all ours are D. coerulescens.
