Anybody know what species these guys are? Batanta Island, Raja Ampat. btw, a great place for nudis.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for posting your fatties but beauties. Likely these are Chromodoris collingwoodi. Here are a few links for your reference:

Thanks,Kevin.

Here's a Janolus sp. and a dotted green one I couldn't find in the book either (both also from Batanta Is.). Cheers!
