Probably Carminodoris estrelyado, aka Hoplodoris estrelyado





In Topic: Flabellina sp?

I'm pretty sure this is Favorinus sp.


There are several places that describe it as Favorinus sp. 2


(even though this page says sp.1, he identifies it earlier as sp.2). The "Nudibranch & Sea Slug ID Indo Pacific" book describes sp.2 as -


15mm, Orange Red with orange lines on the oral tentacles; cerrata brown with conspicuous lamellae and black apices; cerata orange with white subapical rings and purple tips....

Thank you, Brian!


I was already considering Odontodactylus latirostris, but non of the images I found in the www showed such a cyan carapax.

Do you have a link to pictures, showing this color?


Thanks for the compliment - yes, I was snooting, but sort of a 'wide angle' (selfmade) snoot. ;-)








Even though the carapce coloring might not exactly match online pics, here is the desc. from Reef Creature Ident. - 
"Size: up to 8cm; Smasher, female antennal scales pink to purplish males red; body mottled greenish brown with reddish highlights; pink and red uropods."

So I think the size, plus the uropods, plus the other description makes it a pretty close match.

Looks a lot like Odontodactylus latirostris (Pink-Eared Mantis)


Beautiful photos - I love the lighting. Were you using a snoot?
