I observed this guy in 30fsw in Palos Verdes, CA. Total length ~25mm. I think I have it narrowed down to either a yellowish variety of Acanthodoris hudsoni or Cadlina luteomarginata. Although I'm leaning toward A. hudsoni due to the shape of the rhinophores. Thoughts?

Thanks!
Zig :)

Another great find zig. I'd go with A. hudsoni due to the rhinophores and the shape of the papilliae. I've never seen them that yellow though.
