  Mexichromis
(?) sp. #3

 
Mexichromis(?) sp. #3
Maximum size:  5 mm.

Identification:  This dorid is translucent-white with three longitudinal white lines on the notum. A magenta line encircles the body inside the mantle margin. The animal had begun to deteriorate before it could be photographed, so its posture isn't accurate.

Natural history:  Mexichromis(?) sp. #3 is known from a single animal found outside the reef at Midway between 12-25 m (40-83 ft).

Distribution:  Midway.

Taxonomic notes:  The genus of this species is uncertain. However, three light dorsal lines are found in several species moved to Mexichromis in Johnson & Gosliner, 2012. It was first recorded in Hawaii from Midway Atoll by PF in 1993.
