Goniobranchus coi

Goniobranchus coi is a species of very colorful sea slug, a dorid nudibranch, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Chromodorididae.[2]



This species occurs in the tropical Western Pacific Ocean from Australia to the Philippines.[1]


Goniobranchus coi has a white body and foot, but is instantly recognizable for its distinct dorsal pattern. The outer part of the dorsum is yellow, separated from the inner light-brown part by a wavy white and black line. The mantle is brown, edged with a thin purple line. The gills and rhinophores range in color between different individuals from translucent white, through pale-yellow and light-brown.

This species reaches at least 50 mm in length.


Like many slugs in the genus Chromodoris, Goniobranchus coi feeds on sponges. It has been seen feeding on the sponge Chelonaplysilla violacea.[3]
