Hypselodoris bullockii

Hypselodoris bullockii is a species of colorful sea slug or dorid nudibranch, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Chromodorididae.[1]

Hypselodoris bullockii is quite variable in color. Hypselodoris apolegma, which looks similar to this species (and distinguished by a reticulate pattern gradually merging in to the pinkish purple [2]), and was assumed to be possibly a different color form of H. bullockii.[2] However, recent phylogenetic data confirm the distinction of the two species, and suggest a sister species relationship between them.[3]

Distribution[edit]

This nudibranch is found in the Tropical Western Pacific Ocean and the eastern Indian Ocean.[4]
