Glossodoris cincta (Bergh, 1888)

We saw six individuals of this species, five of them on both day and night dives near Yandina, Russell Islands, on 13 and 14 August 1987, and the last on a night dive off Savo on 20 August the same year. Unfortunately despite seeing a fair number of them, we did not get a usable photograph, so the specimen figured below was found at Utirik Atoll, Marshall Islands. We see them in the Marshalls occasionally.
