Ardeadoris ? sp. h104

The genus of this apparently undescribed chromodorid species remains in doubt. In a post on the Sea Slug Forum, I suggested it is mostly likely a Chromodoris, but upon reflection I now lean a bit more towards Ardeadoris. An examination of the internal anatomy will be required to settle the question. We first observed a pair of these nudibranchs at night near Puako, Hawaii, on 27 April 1981. In 1984 and 1985 we saw four more of these at night along the north shore of Oahu at Pupukea and Three Tables.
