Discodorididae sp. 28 Family: Bergh, 1891
Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!
Discodorididae sp. 28 is characterized by its mottled greenish-grey colour, by tan tubercles, and by darker rounded depressions with a greyish reticulate pattern.
I am not sure if the transcendent thing top right are the gills and I cant locate the rhinophores, maybe hidden between the tubercles or retracted. Possible genera for this
species are Atagema Bergh, 1877 or Sclerodoris Eliot, 1904.
The photographer Dr. Alicia Hermosillo-González labeled this picture "Hallaxa verde.JPG", the genus
Hallaxa Eliot, 1909 is placed in the family Actinocyclidae Pruvot-Fol, 1934, it is much more likely to be a Discodorid.
