Comments This flatworm (upper image) displays a striking similarity to numerous phyllidiid and chromodorid sea slugs of the Indo-Pacific. Their hallmark is a translucent white or bluish-white background with dark blue or black longitudinal lines. One example is Chromodoris lochi Rudman, 1982 (lower image), Taxonomy: Family: Chromodorididae, Order Nudibranchia).
