Species Account:

        Chromodoris boucheti is considered to be very rare on Okinawa as I have seen and collected a total of only two individuals over a period of more than twenty-five years of diving here. C. boucheti is one of several similarly pigmented chromodorids found here on Okinawa, although the two Okinawa-collected specimens are unique enough to be readily separated to species.
