This nudibranch is known from the Eastern Pacific Ocean from the Galapagos Islands to Mexico.

Description[edit]

Hypselodoris agassizii has a black body flecked all over with white specks. The upper dorsum has a series of larger white spots running longitudinally. The mantle is edged with a green-yellow-green band, its gills are a transulencent gold colour tipped with black and its rhinophores are black.

This species can reach a total length of at least 100 mm.[1]
