Goniobranchus rubrocornutus (Rudman, 1985)

We found only one Goniobranchus rubrocornutus in the Solomons, and it was on a night dive near Yandina, Russell Islands, on 14 August 1987. I apologize for the poor photo; this was a small animal and I was using my more distant half life size extension tube on the Nikonos, so the image of the nudibranch had to be blown up quite a bit, losing what resolution it had. We have also seen this species in the Marshall Islands.
