    Yuji, this is not Chromodoris Bullocki, I renamed it to the correct name.

    Erwin, are you sure this is H. apolegma? i think it’s a Hyps. bullockii.

    For years, I thought it was H. bullockii but Arief wrote it’s H. apolegma, made me curious and after a small research, I found that they were actually different, see H. apolegma and H. bullockii. And obviously what we got in North Sulawesi is H. apolegma

    Hypselodoris apolegma differs from H. bullocki mainly in colour. The background colour is a rich pinkish purple with a white border to the mantle. At the edge of the mantle the border is solid white but inside this is a region of varying width in which the white forms a reticulate pattern gradually merging in to the pinkish purple. The rhinophore stalks and the base of the gills is an intense purple, the rhinophore clubs and the gills are orange yellow. I can find no anatomical grounds to place this ’species’ in the genus Risbecia.
