Carminodoris cf. flammea Fahey & Gosliner, 2003
 
Carminodoris cf. flammea
Maximum size:  48 mm.

Identification:  This species has small, closely spaced tubercles and long, slender rhinophores. The center of the notum has a darker area irregularly outlined in cream. Both the notum and underside are blotched with brown. It differs from Carminodoris bifurcata in its slender rhinophores with light brown clubs and its uniformly colored branchia.

Natural history:  Carminodoris  cf.  flammea is known from only a few animals found in protected sites on Oahu at depths of < 2 m (< 6 ft).

Distribution:  Oahu: Carminodoris flammea is known from Indonesia.

Taxonomic notes:  The rhinophores, pattern, tubercles and branchia are very similar to Carminororis flammea from Indonesia. However, it lacks the reddish hue of that species. It was first recorded in Hawaii from Iroquois Channel, Pearl Harbor, Oahu by Scott Johnson on March 13, 1982.
