Species Account:

        Chromodoris rubrocornuta is known from Hong Kong, the Marshall Islands, and Queensland. The above featured animal is the only member of the species I've found to date (March, 1999) on Okinawa; it was collected from 12m during a daytime SCUBA excursion from beneath the pier at Tengan amid silty-sand and strewn oyster shell and other "pier rubble".
