looked through nudipixel and think it is one of the following but i'm just not sure:


Felimare samueli


Chromodoris


none of them match in colour or pattern, antenna and gills appear to be similar though, any ideas/suggestions? Found in the Atlantic, specifically Bermuda

Beautiful Slug!

Possible ID- Hypselodoris picta I also looked closely at Hypselodoris zebra but not sure if that name is still still valid?

I'm sure one of our members from that region will be familiar with it.

Cheers,
Jim.

Hypselodoris picta - looks very similar, colors and pattern are a bit off, but i'm not sure if that matters.

Hypselodoris zebra - looks dead on, awesome.

I'd be interested to meet other members from my region, sometimes it seems like i'm all alone on this island
