Discodorid sp. h109

We saw at least five of these between 1978 and 1985, all at night at Pupukea, Oahu, or Puako, Hawaii. All were in small ledges or caves at depths of about 9 to 12m. The genus is uncertain. We originally had tentatively considered it a Sclerodoris because of its irregular ridged and bumpy surface and its relative rigid texture, but its anatomy was not examined to verify this.
