Discodoris cebuensis (Bergh, 1905)

This species was recently known as Discodoris schmeltziana. We found only a few specimens, one from Puako, Hawaii, and a couple from Oahu, one near the Halona Point Blowhole near Koko Head. We have it in a much darker color form from the Marshall Islands. One characteristic not shown in the photos below is the bright lemon yellow foot.

Thanks to Stan Jazwinski for the photo of the Maui specimen below.
