DescriptionThe colour of this nudibranch varies from bright red to pale orange-yellow with tiny black spots scattered on its dorsum. The mantle bears many minute tubercles and defensive spicules. There is a characteristic pale patch between the rhinophores. Adults may attain a body length of up to 15mm. Unlikely to be confused with other British dorids except perhaps with the red variety of Archidoris pseudoargus.
