Chromodoris quadricolor

Chromodoris quadricolor is a species of very colorful sea slug, a dorid nudibranch, a marine opisthobranch gastropod mollusk.

The specific epithet quadricolor means four-colored, so-named because this nudibranch is yellow, white, blue and black in color.

Distribution

This dorid nudibranch lives in the Western Indian Ocean.

Two individuals on a red sponge (possibly the food species), photographed at night off of Dahab, Egypt, in the Red Sea.
