Platydoris ? sp. e492

Tentatively identified as a Platydoris, this species is known in the Marshalls from a single specimen from Kwajalein Atoll. The individual was found on Halimeda algae on a lagoon slope at a depth of about 8 meters on 30 July 2007. It was with a white egg mass (not figured) that it had apparently just deposited on the algae. The specimen measured 32mm in length. This specimen resembles another unidentified species, Platydoris sp. e488, but for now we are keeping them separate.
