This species is moderately rare at Kwajalein, where it is found almost exclusively in seaward reef caves and ledges at night. The two exceptions among perhaps a dozen found were under dead coral during the day in the same area. All were found at depths of 12 to 16 meters, and most measured in the 25 to 35mm range. Gosliner et al 2008 list it as Doris sp. 4.
The specimen below was found in a ledge at night on Kwajalein Atoll's seaward reef in 15m of water on 5 June 2010.
