Nudi ID wanted

Recommended Posts

I'm sure plenty of you Nudi-philes will know what this one is, but I couldn't find it in my ID book! It was taken in the Red Sea near Taba in the Aqaba Straight. Length approx 2.5 inches - 6cm.

That's a good picture for id!

 

In "Nudibranchs of the World" by Debelius & Kuiter this is listed as Hypselodoris cf maculosa 1. The "cf" means it's similar to but not really the same as maculosa and the "1" means that it is one of several color forms. It can be distinguished from the true H. maculosa by the solid orange margin; in H. maculosa the margin has small white spots. It might be found under another name in other nudi books.
