Dermatobranchus sp. 9
Upper Photo: Koh Hu Chang, Pattaya, Chonburi Province, Thailand, Gulf of Thailand, 6 metres, Length: 25 mm. 24 January 2010. Photographer: Lawrence Neal.
This animal has a black background colour and white longitudinal ridges on the mantle, each with a thin yellow line down the midline. Its association with stoloniferous octocorals strongly suggests that it is a species of Dermatobranchus.
This species has similarities to an animal Baba identified as Dermatobranchus striatus (van Hasselt, 1824) [see message #23319].Authorship details
