Ardeadoris carlsoni

Ardeadoris carlsoni is a species of sea slug, a dorid nudibranch, a shell-less marine gastropod mollusk in the family Chromodorididae.[2] It was transferred to the genus Ardeadoris on the basis of DNA evidence.[3]


This species was described from Bega Lagoon, Yanuca Island, Fiji, in the Western Pacific Ocean.[4]


Ardeadoris carlsoni has a pale, orange-yellow mantle with paler blotches. There is a white band at the edge of the mantle and a thin orange band at the very edge.[4]
