Paradoris cf. liturata
Egypt, Red Sea, 1997. Photo: Michael Shroedl.
Note added 5 March 2007: This species was previously on the Forum as Doris? sp. 3.
This apparently unnamed dorid is another mimic of a phyllidiid. It has a resemblance to Phyllidiopis dautzenbergi, which is endemic to the Red Sea. It is possibly a form of Paradoris liturata.
See phyllidiid mimics for links to other examples of nudibranchs mimicking phyllidiids.Authorship details
