Chromodoris fidelis

Chromodoris (Goniobranchus) fidelis

Description:

The mantle is creamy white with a broad orange band around the mantle edge and a thin wine red line between the white and the orange. On the inner edge of the orange band there are usually a series of tongue-like patches running into the white region. In some cases they are almost all wine red while in others there is only a slight thickening of the red band. Grows to 20-25mm long.

Habitat:

Three common variations are illustrated here and all seem present throughout the Indo-West Pacific.

Notes:

Spotted in Apo Island.
