Bullock's Hypselodoris

Hypselodoris bullockii


Bullock's Hypselodoris (a.k.a. Bullockii Sea Slug) has several pale purple hues, from very pale whitish purple to purple, but never as dark as that found in a similar-looking nudibranch, the Hypselodoris apolegma. The color is uniform over the whole mantle, with a narrow band of white (or dark purple) at the mantle edge. The gills and rhinophores are yellow with purplish base or pale purple all over.


Coral, rubble areas all over the Indo-Pacific region.
