Pleurobranchus albiguttatus (Bergh, 1905)

These pleurobranchs were not particularly uncommon on night dives at Pupukea and Makua, Oahu, in ledges and small caves in 5 to 15m of water.

The specimens below are morphologically the same as those above, differing only in color, a trait known to be highly variable among the pleurobranchs. Sea Slugs of Hawaii reports that both forms have been found together and have identical internal shells.
