Unidentified Dendrodorid #14
 
Unidentified Dendrodorid #14
Maximum size:  ( )

Identification: This is a flattened, smooth, dusky pink species with a violet marginal line. The rhinophores are pink with white tips and the branchia are decorated with white and gray.

Natural history:  Unidentified dendrodorid #14 is known from one animal dredged from about 100 m (328 ft).

Distribution:  Oahu.

Taxonomic notes:  This species is most likely a Dendrodoris. However, since no specimen was collected, it's placement in that genus (or this family, for that matter--it was previously listed as "Unidentified Dorid #14") remains uncertain. It was first recorded in Hawaii from off Hale'iwa Trench, Oahu by Terry Gosliner.
