Species Account:

        Dorid unk. species #1 is considered to be very rare in the waters of Okinawa's main island as I have seen and collected only the above featured animal. This small animal was collected during a mid-morning Scuba excursion from an area of mixed sand and coral rubble, amid numerous thallophytes (browns, greens, and reds).

        I've added a second page with several additional images of the same animal.
