Chromodoris sp. 06 is a large Chromodorid, the above specimen was 6.5 cm long. It has a white body, a broad median longitudinal black band and a broad black submarginal band encircles the rhinophores and gills. Both bands are outlined by diffuse dark gray (looking like a shadow). It has an orange marginal band. The rhinophores and gills are orange.
The photographer Gordon Tillen writes:"The overall opinion at the workshop was Chromodoris sp."
Very similar is Chromodoris magnifica (Quoy & Gaimard, 1832) which is usually 'smaller' and differs by a thin white marginal band, and has no black submarginal band on the head, the band is broken in front of the rhinophores.
This species might be a dark colour form of Chromodoris sp. 05 Genus: Alder & Hancock, 1855, I keep them seperate for now.
